Two recently published books hold great importance for the study of ancient geography and cartography. Volume 15 of the Tabula Imperii Byzantini presents a formidable array of information on the geography of late antique Syria. Meanwhile, Duane Roller’s Ancient Discovery masterfully surveys the development of Greek and Roman geographic thought and knowledge. Both volumes make important contributions to the field, and will prove valuable for years to come.
