L'Épitomé des Ethniques de Stéphane de Byzance comme source historique : l'exemple de l'Europe occidentale

Abstract : The geographical lexicon of Stephen of Byzantium, called in abbreviated form Ethnika, brings together the "géonymes" with a derivative form, as defined by ancient grammarians (ethnic, female, ktetika ...). It is the subject here of a careful reading, analyzing in particular the variable reduction rate according to the parts of the work (probably originally divided into 60 books).The precise analysis identifies several periods aggregation of information, the most important from a source-lexicon dated around the middle of the second century AD. The study mentions the corpus relating to Western Europe (minus Italy) refines the information back to the Greek writers and gives new comprehension on certain information. It is therefore possible to better contextualize "géonymes" cited by Stephen of Byzantium.
