During the eight full days of contact time for myself and the participants of a Harvard travel-study program, 2016.06.10–18, I tried each day to focus on things to see at each ancient site we visited. Wherever it was possible, I used as my primary ancient source the reportage of the ancient traveler Pausanias, who flourished in the second century CE and whose Greek text is translated into English at a site entitled A Pausanias Reader in Progress. This travel-study program was a longer version of an earlier such program, 2016.03.13–18. Things I noted in the context of the shorter and earlier version of the travel-study in March 2016 have been published as a posting in Classical Inquiries. And now, for the present posting in Classical Inquiries, I am publishing some things I noted in the context of the longer and later version of the travel-study in June 2016. In my write-up here of the June 2016 travel-study, I will track convergences with and divergences from my write-up of the March 2016 travel-study.
