Excerpt from Travels of Anacharsis the Younger in Greece`, Vol. 5 of 7: During the Middle of the Fourth Century Before the Chrisitian ?ra

I had often passed a considerable time in different country houses, and had frequently traversed Attica. I shall here collect the principal remarks which I made during these excursions.

The fields are separated from each other by hedges or by walls. By a wise regulation observed in Attica, such lands as are mortgaged for the repayment of money are pointed out by small columns bearing an inscription which records the obligations contracted with a creditor. Similar columns, placed before the houses that are pledged, in like manner make them known to every one, and the lender need be under no fear that he should be injured by any secret contacts.

The possessor of a field may not dig a well, or build a house or wall in it, except at certain distance prescribed by law, from the field of his neighbour: neither is he permitted to turn the waters which descend from the hills that may surround his land over his neighbour's ground; but he may turn them into the public road,(a) and the proprietors of the adjacent fields must defend their lands from them. In certain places the rain-water is received in canals, which convey it to a great distance.

Apollodorus had a considerable estate near Eleusis, to which he took me with him. The fields were covered with ripened corn and slaves reaped it with the sickle, while young children gathered the falling ears, and gave them to those who bound them up in heaves.
