The Greek historian and geographer Strabo or Strábōn (63 B.C.-28 A.D.) undertook, after rhetorical and philosophical studies, long journeys through the then known world and then settled in Rome. His extensive historical work has only been preserved in fragments. However, his "Geographia", which is considered the most important source of ancient knowledge about Europe, Asia and Africa, is largely complete. It contains detailed information about religion, cults and customs of the peoples as well as historical anecdotes. These represent an image of the world at the time of the Roman Emperor Augustus (63 BC to 14 AD) and his successor Tiberius (42 BC-47 AD)
