Who is the mysterious Athanasius who hires nineteen-year-old Rousseau as his secretary? What does a French merchant know about Madame Tyanitis and the opium addict doctor Scarlato Karatzas? What were the confinement institutions in the eastern Mediterranean like in 1786? How does a travel description become a ticket to England? Who is the elegant Isaacbeis that Konstantinos Karatzas hears about in Berlin? How does an ambassador cause a new tirade? Which texts are hidden in the Corfiot Archaeologies of Eugene Voulgaris?
