Pausanias was an educated Roman citizen, who was born in Asia Minor at around 110 CE, when the Roman Empire was at its height. He was able to visit many parts of Greece because it was relatively safe and easy to travel around, thanks to the state of peace (known as Pax Romana) maintained throughout the Roman Empire during this period. He came up with the idea of writing a Description of Greece, a chapter of which focuses on the region of Attica.
