By Strabo

Страбон (64/63 г. до н. э. — 23/24 г. н. э.), древнегреческий географ и историк. Родился в Амасии (Малая Азия), эллинистическом городе с многочисленным греческим населением, в знатной, богатой семье. Предки Страбона были высшими должностными лицами Понтийского царства. Прадед был военачальником царя Митридата VI Эвпатора. Ещё один родственник Страбона был верховным жрецом в Коммагене, т. е. вторым лицом после царя. Страбон получил хорошее образование. Путешествовал по Греции, Малой Азии, Италии и Египту. Страбон — автор не дошедших до нас «Исторических записок», задуманных как продолжение истории Полибия и содержавших описание событий со 146 г. до н. э. (разрушение римлянами Коринфа и Карфагена) до около 31 г. до н. э. (видимо, до битвы при Актии). И также автор знаменитой «Географии», написанной около 7 г. до н. э. В «Географии» Страбон стремился описать ойкумену (обитаемую землю) на основе сопоставления и обобщения всех известных к его времени данных поэтому сочинение Страбона рассматривается в историографии как итог географических знаний античности. Из многих авторов, названных Страбоном, главными его источниками являлись географы Эратосфен, Гиппарх, Полибий, и Посидоний. Широко использовал Страбон малоазийскую традицию, особенно сведения историков Митридатовых войн (I в. до н. э.), сообщения которых зачастую восходят к локальным историческим и географическим трудам поэтому Страбоном полно описаны Кавказ и Боспорское царство. По замыслу автора «География» должна была служить практическим руководством для римских государственных деятелей, полководцев, провинциальной администрации, торговцев и т. д., поэтому она содержит большое количество исторических, этнографических, бытовых сведений в ряде случаев она является единственным источником. Из 17 книг «Географии» только первые две носят теоретический характер (посвящены математической географии), остальные содержат описание стран и областей (книги 3-6 — Испания, Галлия, Британия, Италия, Сицилия книги 7-10 — Северная и Восточная Европа, северные Балканы, Греция книги 11-14 — Северное и Восточное Причерноморье, Малая Азия книги 15-17 — Индия, Месопотамия, Аравия, Египет). «География» является фактически первым опытом исторической географии и представляет собой ценный исторический источник.
Это издание «Географии» Страбона в серии «The Loeb Classical Library» в восьми томах считается самым лучшим. Тома содержат древнегреческий текст и английский перевод, статьи и указатели, цветные карты и планы (в начале I, в конце V и VIII).
