Genre and Ancient Cosmology

Charles Halton had a good post awhile back that strengthens something I've tried to point out before: we need to be careful in getting our understanding of the ancients' cosmology from the wrong texts (see Revisiting the Days of Genesis, 2-3. fn. 4). He makes a good point in even understanding the purpose of maps in the ancient world.
