About this work


"The present view of the fertile plain of Troy, the course of Scamander and the different heights of Mount Ida was taken from the back of the Greek Church of Saint George at Troiaki ... it is conjectured that the most northern part of Troy might have extended to within a mile or two of the village of Cumkoie [Kumkoy] that is the sandy village, which appears in the middle of the plain. ... the place where Troy stood is now corn land, and partly overgrown with low underwood" (Museum Worsleyanum, op. cit. p. 41)


[London] : [Septimus Prowett], [1824?]
