Caption: The World by Strabo. 1886 replica of a map of the known world according to the Ancient Greek geographer, philosopher, and historian Strabo (c.63-23 BC). Strabo's only surviving work is the 17-volume 'Geographica', a complete account of the known world centred on the Mediterranean Sea. He obtained his information not only from his own travels but from the writings of others. He also detailed political geography in the work, notably the rise and expansion of the Roman empire.
