The Massaliote Periplus
Periplus
or Massiliote Periplus
Periplus
is a theoretical reconstruction of a sixth century BC periplus, or sailing manual, proposed by Adolf Schulten.[1][2][3] Schulten believed a Massiliote Periplus
Periplus
had been versified in the lines of the Ora Maritima by Avienus. Schulten dated it to the 6th century BC. It describes a voyage from Oestrymnis, modern Pointe du Raz, to Massalia, modern Marseille. Its existence has been denied by other scholars. References[edit]
