About the Authors
  • Strabo's Geography, completed in the early first century AD, is the primary source for the history of Greek geography. This Guide provides the first English analysis of and commentary on this long and difficult text, and serves as a companion to the author's The Geography of Strabo, the first English translation of the work in many years. It thoroughly analyzes each of the seventeen books and provides perhaps the most thorough bibliography as yet created for Strabo's work. Careful attention is paid to the historical and cultural data, the thousands of toponyms, and the many lost historical sources that are preserved only in the Geography. This volume guides readers through the challenges and complexities of the text, allowing an enhanced understanding of the numerous topics that Strabo covers, from the travels of Alexander and the history of the Mediterranean to science, religion, and cult.

    • The first complete commentary in English on the Geography of Strabo, accompanying the author's previously published translation
    • Essential for all those interested in the history of ancient geography and the many topics covered by Strabo, from the travels of Alexander and the history of the Mediterranean to science, religion, and cult
    • Includes a thorough bibliography for the text and its sources
