This sparse depiction of Greece and its islands illustrates the expeditions of Alcibiades, an Athenian general who was successful during the Peloponnesian War. The map also covers the boot of Italy, part of Sicily, the western shore of Turkey and part of Crete. The ornate, flourishing title cartouche contrasts with the simplicity of the map.
A clean, bright example on watermarked paper with a hint of toning along centerfold.
