 Ataman Hotel - Ancient World's Geographer: Strabo
A member of a noble family on his mother's side, Strabo was born in 64 or 63 BC in the city of Amaseia (now called Amasya) capital of Pontus, a region in northeastern Anatolia that was an independent kingdom from the 4th century BC until overcome by Pompey in 66 BC.
It is possible that owing to the strife with Rome, Strabo's family may have sent him to Nyssa in the hope that it would be a safer place for their young son than Amaseia.
Strabo was also influenced by Pythodoris, queen of Pontus, who was so great a friend of Rome that she bequeathed her throne to Augustus and this also must have played a role in his partiality towards the empire.
