Between Geography and History Hellenistic Constructions of the Roman World - Oxford Classical Monographs
Author: Katherine Clarke
The Roman empire radically affected geographical conceptions, evoking new ways of describing the earth and of constructing its history. This book explores the writings of three literary figures of the age: Polybius, Posidonius, and Strabo. They use, but transform, pre-existing Greek traditions in order to describe the new world of Rome.
