W.K. Pritchett, who has previously published studies on the topography of Pausanias, offers two chapters: 1) a study of the periegete?s account of the Demosion Sema, some tombs of which were excavated in 1997, and 2) a study of certain aspects of Pausanias? account of Greek religion, particularly the worship of images. The author suggests that two types of defective readings, common in the transmitted text, occur in the record of the Athenian military cemetry, and that simple emendations will remove any change that the record was not based on autopsy. In the second chapter, the focus is on fetishism, the date of early temples, sacred stones, meteorites, trees, Daidalos, xoana, and image worship. There are four indexes. In addition to classicists and archaeologists, students of art-history will find the work of interest.
