THE POLITICAL GEOGRAPHY OF THE AKSUMITE POLITY AS SEEN IN MEDITERRANEAN SOURCES. [Abstract ID: 0518-07]
In the early centuries of our era, the Aksumite kingdom flourished in parts of present-day Ethiopia and Eritrea. The kingdom attracted the interest of traders, diplomats, scholars and missionaries from the Roman and Byzantine empires. In this paper I demonstrate how outside observeres employed familiar terminology in order to make sense of a foreign geopolitcal space.
