Strabo

 

Strabo (c. 64 BCE- 24 CE)

“It is in great undertakings that the truth shines out in all its brilliancy, for here, while the success resulting from knowledge is grand, the consequences of ignorance are disastrous.”

  • Strabo’s Geography (I.1.17), translated by H.C. Hamilton and W. Falconer (1903 edition), republished in The Complete Works of Strabo (Delphi Classics, 2016).
