Garden Location (In relation to other schools)

Comments 1

  • I've seen this artwork before and while it might give the idea of the "relative" position of the Garden, Lyceum, and Academy, it distorts the overall geographical context. That's one reason I didn't include it in my paper posted to the Files.

    The Dromos leading from the walls to the Academy also went through the Kermeikos district near the walls. The city graveyard was also along the route of the Dromos. The vast bucolic fields between the walls and the Academy in this view is just misleading.

    Thanks 2
