Summary "This book argues that Herodotus' topography of the Persian Wars, long taken at face value, may partly be a product of Greek imagination in the approximately fifty years between the Xerxes' invasion and its publication, with the landscape functioning as a catalyst. This innovative approach leads to a new understanding of the topography of the invasion, and of the ways in which Greeks in the late fifth century BCE understood the world around them"-- Provided by publisher.
