Later edition of the fictional voyage the young Anacharsis travels in Greece.

"In the form of a fiction which allowed the author to expose a host of facts and secondary notions that would tire in many treatises, the Voyage de Anacharsis provides an in-depth knowledge of the religious, civil, literary and philosophical history of the most enlightened nation of antiquity. It is a masterpiece of erudition, composition and style." (Larousse)
