The ancient Greek historian and geographer Strabo, who survived the change of er, has devoted his long life, huge work, creating a geographic and ethnographic encyclopedia of antiquity. The Grand plan is embodied in the 17 books of Geography, where Strabo for the first time brought together information about the inhabited earth and gave them a systematic review. Many literary monuments of antiquity rekonstruiruet only on the texts of Geography.
Strabo not only summarized all historical texts, but also added his own observations, gleaned in his numerous journeys. Since Herodotus did not remain any other such a colourful book, full of paintings of the life and customs of a little-known tribes. Strabo had wanted him to read with passion and use educated readers, but not scientists. However, fame came to him only through the thousand years. The Byzantines so praised the work of Strabo, that it became known as the authoritative title: the Geographer.
