Πέραν του Γυθείου (Μαραθωνησι) έρχεται η κυρίως λεγομένη Μάνη.. Η χώρα αύτη δια τό αγροίκον της φύσεως είνε πρωτότυπος, καί ως τοιαύτη επέβαλε και χαρακτήρα και ήθη εις τους κατοίκους της ιδιαίτερα..
Beyond Gytheion (Marathonisi) is the area called Mani… This land, due to its rugged landscape is original thus establishing the special character and manners of its inhabitants…
