This is a very fine map of the region surrounding Rome with the major roads delineated, including the Via Appia through the Pontine Marshes. The map extends north to Lake Bracciano and south to Sermoneta, with Rome illustrated in plan-view format. The map is accompanied by a sheet of text describing the region.
