This is a very unusual map of Jerusalem based on the Scriptures and the story of Joseph. Sparsely detailed, there are only a few important sites shown within the city walls, such as the Palace of Queen Helena, the Antonia Fortress, the Temple, and Herods' Palace. Outside the walls, Golgotha, the graves of Helena and Herod, the compounds of Pompey, the Assyrians, and Titus, and the Mount of Olives are depicted.
