(1995) ‘Strabo, Polybios and the
stade,’ Phoenix 49.1
Read online, free, through JSTOR.
Different conversion rates between the Greek stade and the Roman mile do not
– as commonly supposed -- reflect different ‘values’ for
the Greek stade, but the different value of the Greek foot (of which there
were 600 in the stade) vs. the Roman foot (of which there were 5000 in the
miles). The conversion rate of 8 ⅓:1 does not account for the foot
differential. The conversion rate of 8:1 does take the differential (25:24)
