I:292 "..[At] the site of the ancient town of Hexamillia built across the Isthmus [from Corinth]..We found the cottagers all dancing to wretched music..I asked them if they had any medals and immediately they all flocked around me, each with a few, which I purchased from five, ten and twenty paras a piece. These were mostly of Corinth and Phokis."
