"Dodwell's travels in Greece covered two periods; he left Trieste in April 1801 in company with Sir William Gell, touring the Ionian Islands and the Troad. later, in 1805, while a prisoner-of-war of the French, he obtained permission to travel, and, accompanied by the Italian artist Simone Pomardi, he toured mainland Greece and the Ionian Islands" (Blackmer, p. 108).
