Sample text

Between 250 and 700 metres altitude the forest vegetation is represented largely by oak, turkey oak, sycamore–maple, ash, elm, maple, linden, lilac, wild apple, pear and cherry (Floca 1957, 26–30). There are also bushes of corneal, sweet briar/hip or herbs such as fescue (Festuca vallesiaca and sulcata), lettuce, geranium (Geranium Robertianum), common lungwort, marigold, moneywort and hawkweed (Hieracium transsilvanicum). At higher altitudes, between 700 and 1,000 metres, the wild vegetation is represented by beech, though in the Poiana Rusca or Sureanu–Orastie Mountains, the beech level can go as high as 1,400 metres.

The Sureanu Mountains (also called ‘Sebes’ or ‘Orastie’ Mountains) are lower than the Retezat (2,130 at Virful lui Patru). Their upper parts are fairly level on different steps without much fragmentation. With a higher centre (1,600– 1,800 metres), their outer limits to the north in Transylvania reach only 900–1,100 metres (Gheorghiu 2001, 3). Their flattened appearance is even more evident at their western end, which extends into a large elevated platform (the Luncanilor Platform). Located at the south-western end, at the point of contact with the Hateg Depression, is a large carstic zone (Ohaba Ponor-Banita) that was formed on a base of Jurassic limestones with many caves, dolines, canyons and sub-terranean rivers (Gherasimov 1960, I, 216).

Very popular with later writers, his account establishes an ethnic Getic stereotype, extracted from stereotypes applied to the Barbares in general and to the Thracians among them. It is not unusual for ancient writers to refer in the first instance to the natives from the zone of immediate contact just beyond the territories under Greek and later Roman control as an obvious focus of specific interest and of available information. This is a serious bias that has been addressed by modern interpreters of ancient texts and which substantially affects the objectivity of such sources in assessing barbarian societies outside the geographical limits of the classical world.
