Description

Strabo's Geography shows him as a Greek scholar who absorbed, probably as a product of years spent there as an adult, the political and cultural atmosphere of Augustan Rome. His contemporary Roman political consciousness makes Strabo arguably an Augustan writer despite his Greek origins. This book argues that this duality offers a key to understanding Strabo's character and writings. At the same time it provides another view of Rome in the time of Augusts: a meeting place for Greek Sholars representing diverse fields of knowledge and enquiry from all over the Hellenistic East. It offers the first full-scale interpretation of the man and his life in English and argues for a deeper understanding of the fusion of Greek and Roman elements in the culture of the Roman Empire.
