To determine the length of the ecumene Eratosthenes used the latitude close to the fundamental latitude Dicaearchus. However, it started he did not from the Pillars, and somewhat to the west - the so-called sacred cape (now San Vicente in Portugal Cape). This parallel passed through the Strait of Sicily, the southern tip of the Peloponnese and Rhodes-up to the Gulf of Issus in the north-eastern corner of the Mediterranean Sea. Then she went through the whole of Asia, south of the mountain ranges that Eratosthenes combined generic name brand and that, as in Dicaearchus, were stretched in a straight line, which took place from west to east. It ends at the eastern coast of India, some farther north of the confluence of the Ganges in the ocean. The length of this whole line of Eratosthenes determined in 77 800 Stage. Thus, the length of the ecumene in more than two times greater than its width. It was a huge island, which stretches from west to east and washed on all sides by the Ocean.
