How to use "Sabines" in context?
Sabines are people of the Mediterranean basin who trace their roots back to the ancient cities of Troy and Sardis.
The word sabine derives from the ancient Greek word for "shepherd." Over time, the term was applied to people from the cities of Troy and Sardis, which were both rich in sheep and wool production. The Greeks and Romans adopted the term to describe a variety of people, many of whom were pastoralists.
Today, the word sabine is still used to describe people from the cities of Troy and Sardis, as well as other Mediterranean cities.
