All the locations related errors in the above post have been fixed. Some of the characters in Pausanius lack proper Description, which needs to be looked into but rest of the text till 1.29.11 is mostly error free.

PAUSANIUS TEXT ERROR RECORD

1. a) Section 1.9.1. b)Pausanius mixes up Ptolemy histoy and refers to Ptolemy IX Lathyrus' history but claims he is Philometor. Additionally, the Alexander in question is Ptolemy X Alexander, and the Cleopatra is Cleopatra III. c) Apart from wiki here are my sources to back my claim :http://virtualreligion.net/iho/ptolemy_9.html, http://virtualreligion.net/iho/ptolemy_10.html d) I have created a comment in the main text in section 1.9.1

The way to deal with Pausanius' historical errors

After a consultation with Dr. Bowman this afternoon, it has been decided that we are not (at this point) to correct the errors Pausanius makes in his text. Dr. Bowman wants to stay true to Pausanius' "truth" so that we are aligned in our transcription of his work.

For the moment, we will make a note using xml comment:

And then go to the blog post for Ptolemy errors and record our findings.

There has been a blog post created just for the identification of Pausanius errors. In this post, we will indicate

a) section of text
b) error made
C) citations to back our claim
d) affirmation a comment has been added in the encoded text

At a later point, these errors may be gathered and provided in a reference site for the transcribed text or if it becomes problematic there will be another discussion on how to move forward.

Incorrect DAY reference - Pausanias

Pausanias book 1 , 1.3.1 - "Theseus throwing Sciron into the sea and Day carrying away Cephalus."

"DAY" in the above text links to EOS(dawn).While this maybe correct based on the wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemera , need to know if a new person should be created and linked to instead of dawn or kept as is .

Wikipedia entry-

Pausanias seems to confuse her with Eos when saying that she carried Cephalus away. Pausanias makes this identification with Eos upon looking at the tiling of the royal portico in Athens, where the myth of Eos and Kephalos is illustrated. He makes this identification again at Amyklai and at Olympia, upon looking at statues and illustrations where Eos (Hemera) is present.
