Aims and Scope
This collection presents major portions of a Berlin conference on ancient geography. The volume is devoted to questions about the shape and size of the Greco-Roman Oecumene, including its boundaries and internal structure. Building upon on analysis of different literary genres, the articles contained in this volume help to unite dispersed and fragmentary knowledge about the subject, as well as to reconstruct and analyze the different contexts in which this knowledge was generated and preserved.
