Die Berichte der unbekannteren Indienfahrer (2219)

(35,151 words)

This entry was prepared by Stefan Faller and published on 1 May 2019. Kommentar Im Anhang 721 der FGrHist III C hat Jacoby nach eigenem Bekunden die Fragmente der „späteren Indienfahrer“ gesammelt. Eine Durchsicht der Texte zeigt allerdings, dass die zeitliche Komponente dabei nicht der Hauptgrund für die Auswahl war: Zwar bezieht sich die überwiegende Menge des Materials auf Notizen aus den Jahrhunderten nach Skylax oder Ktesias, aber einerseits nicht ausschließlich und andererseits war für die Aufnahme der …

Apollonides (2004)

(10,375 words)

Author(s): Haake, Matthias
This entry was written by Matthias Haake and published on 1 April 2015. Einleitung Über die Biographie des Apollonides sind keinerlei Einzelheiten bekannt; seine Lebenszeit läßt sich im ersten Jahrhundert v. Chr. ansetzen,1 da er von Strabon (F 4-6) angeführt wird und über Ereignisse berichtet, die im Zusammenhang mit Mithradates VI. (F 6) stehen. Wenn es zutrifft, daß Strabon Apollonides nur durch Poseidonios vermittelt kannte,2 so wäre davon auszugehen, daß Apollonides’ Περίπλους τῆς Εὐρώπης betiteltes Werk (F 1 u. 2) vor Poseidonios’ Tod um das Jahr 51 v. Chr. ges…

Fragments from the Chro…
