Hestiaea

Flourished circa 250 B.C.E., Alexandria, Egypt

Although none of her writings are extant, we know of Hestiaea through the Greek geographer Strabo (64/64 B.C.E.–circa C.E. 23). She was a literary scholar who wrote a treatise on Homer’s Iliad and engaged in debates with other Alexandrian scholars on the geographic location of Troy.
