This is a reproduction of an original 16th century map of Greece by Abraham Ortelius. The map was based upon Giacomo Gastaldi’s earlier rendition of the region. It is richly detailed and shows many physical features of the region, including islands, rivers, forests, mountains, lakes, and islands.
This map displays a strong impression and is embellished by a sailing ship and includes a decorative title cartouche in the lower, left corner.
What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
