Book description
More than three hundred years before the birth of
Christ, a traveler from the Greek colony of Marseilles,
named Pytheas, made known to the civilized world
the existence of a people called Guttones, who lived
near the Frische Haff, in the country since known as
East Prussia, and traded in the amber that was
gathered on the Baltic shores. For four whole
centuries these amber merchants of the Baltic are
heard of no more. The elder Pliny, a Roman writer
who died in the year 79 after Christ, tells us that in
his time they were still dwelling in the same neighborhood;
and a generation later, Tacitus, the greatest
of Roman historians, twice mentions their name.
