Description
This manuscript covers the history of Athens from the ancient times until the beginning of the eighteenth century. The author who was appointed to the mufti of Athnes in 1698/99 finished a text which was initially composed by a mufti of Athens in 1715. This early manuscript based on counselary stories told during the gatherings of the guardian of Napflion Muhsinzâde Mehmed Pasha. Mahmud Efendi claimed that he used works by Herodotus, Thucydides, Plutarch and – in some parts of the text – Islamic sources as well.
