The Red Sea is Arabian, Erythraean... Place Name Clustering in Pleiades and TAVO (Blog Post)
Title: The Red Sea is Arabian, Erythraean... Place Name Clustering in Pleiades and TAVO
Author: Francis Deblauwe
Abstract: Place names can have many variants due to not only chronological (e.g., Byzantium, Constantinople and Istanbul) or cultural/linguistic reasons (e.g., Genève, Genf, Ginevra and Geneva) but also due to differences in the exact place or area covered. The confusing connections between place names ultimately reflect the extent/lack of accurate knowledge of the textual sources as well as the changing economic and political lenses through which places were viewed. This blog post explores these issues using an example from the Red Sea.
