This is a fine print reproduction of a striking map by Edward Wells that depicts much of Anatolia, from slightly east of Ankara.
It shows the ancient geography and place names of much of Anatolia, eastern Greece, and a number of Greek islands. The area depicted includes much of the southern coast of the Black Sea in the north, to Lemnos, Keos and Cos in the west and south, along the Mediterranean as far east as the ancient and strategically located port city of Pompeiopolis, where products from the magnificent Taurus mountains had been traded from time immemorial.
