The author discusses Strabo’s opinion that the citation of the island of Cerne, in Eratosthenes’ geographical work, is the result of fables. It is, in fact, unlikely (if not impossible) that Strabo did not know Hanno’s Periplus, in which for the first time the citation of Cerne appears and which is widely quoted by Polybius, one of the sources privileged by Strabo, who, however, has no consideration for the informations given by the authors of peripli, as it is stated by the well-known case of Pitea about Thule.
