From the cover: “This is the second volume of a series of guidebooks to the history and antiquities of Libya, a country which in Classical times was as important to the culture of the Mediterranean as any other bordering its coasts. Cyrenaica (known to the Arabs as the Green Mountain) has a terrain which resembles that of Greece or Turkey. It was settled at an early date by Greeks and subsequently was part of the Roman and Byzantine empires before the advent of the Arabs. Each of these civilisations has left its mark on the landscape; all are described and explained in a comprehensive gazetteer.”
