Strabo, Geography 7. 3. 1 (trans. Jones) (Greek geographer C1st . to C1st .) :
"It is because of men's ignorance of these regions [. the land of the Thrakian Getai (Thracian Getae), now Bulgaria-Romania] that any heed has been given to those who created the mythical ‘Rhipaíon (Rhipaean) Mountains and Hyperborean,’ and also to all those false statements made by Pytheas the Massalian [Greek writer C4th .] regarding the country along the Okeanos (Oceanus), wherein he uses as a screen his scientific knowledge of astronomy and mathematics. So then, those men should be disregarded; in fact, if even Sophokles [tragedian C5th .], when in his role as a tragic poet he speaks of Oreithyia, tells how she was snatched up by Boreas (the North Wind) and carried ‘over the whole sea to the ends of the earth and to the sources of night and to the unfoldings of heaven and to [Hyperborea] the ancient garden of Phoibos (Phoebus) [Apollon].’"
