Footnotes

  • Lear visited Syra on his way back to Athens at the end of a two month exploration of Crete during which he made nearly two hundred drawings. He had sailed from Khanià early in the morning of 31 May, and sat on deck as the boat sailed north through the Cyclades. "The multitude of 'Isles of Greece' is quite uncommon and lovely", he wrote in his diary, "About eight we reached Syra. A wonderful voyage!".
