This collection of papers is dedicated to the problems of centre and periphery in the ancient world in their historical and geographical aspects. These problems are discussed here within a broad chronological scope: from the Mycenaean period, through the flourishing of geographical science in Hellenistic times, to the Roman period, represented by the names of Strabo, Pomponius Mela, Pliny and Ptolemy. The papers embrace all parts of the ancient oikoumene, from Africa in the south and Ireland in the west, through northern and eastern Europe to Central Asia in the east. Several authors have devoted their contributions to ancient mapmaking and how this reflects Greek and Roman conceptions of the periphery of the ancient world. The authors are drawn from across Europe: France, Italy, Poland and Russia.
