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.

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.
