Peutinger Table

Back to people overview

An ancient Roman road format of map, showing an expanded view of the Roman empire and Italian peninsula.

Part of the Peutinger table map from Jansson's Historical Atlas, showing one section of an elongated map of Italy rendered in fine copperplate engraving with rich hand colour.  The Table shows roads horizontally. Thus all the sections together would form one long, elongated map of Italy and the surrounding lands and sea.
