Strabo wrote the Geographica (also known as the Geography) between the years 17/18 and 23/24. He presents a fascinating picture of how the world appeared to the Greeks and Romans of the late 1st century BCE and early 1st century CE. Strabo's work,which was extremely long, was divided into seventeen books, probably by the author himself. Centuries later, Gustav Kramer produced a 3-volume edition of Strabo' s Greek text. What we have here is the first volume, containing Strabo's introduction and his description of northern and western Europe. For further details, go to www.strabo.ca.
