How did ancient people explain inverted seasons on the other side of the equator?

In the southern hemisphere, seasons are inverted compared to the northern hemisphere. Before the current knowledge that this is caused by Earth’s tilt compared to its rotation around the sun, how did people explain this?

They didn’t. It’s worth noting that the ability to travel to the other side of the globe in a day (or eaven in a month) is a modern phenomenon. So even the relatively tiny number of people who do make such a trip probably won’t notice anything odd with the seasons.
