  1. Strabo was an ancient Greek geographer and historian. The exact dates he lived are unknown, but fall around 64 B.C-19 A.D. He wrote a 17-volume geography tome based largely on his own travels. Strabo had visited most of the known world at the time: Europe, Asia and North Africa. He included more than simple topography, but also wrote about the local economies, institutions and customs. He's also believed to have written a detailed history of ancient Rome that covered the period from 144 B.C. to the founding of the Roman Empire. Unfortunately, Strabo's history of Rome has been lost.
