This volume of Strabo is mostly about how previous writers got geography all wrong. He spends a good bit of time on Eratosthenes, Hipparchus, Posidonius and Polybius, pointing out their errors and how they contradicted each other. It's only in the last chapter of Book 2 that he starts detailing his view of the Earth.
