This handsomely engraved map of the Roman Empire extends from North Africa to Great Britain, and east to the Balkans. It is divided into provinces, and notable cities are named, including Rome, Constantinople, Carthage, and Athens. The map is adorned with a decorative title cartouche at top left.
A fine impression with a bit of faint color offsetting and light toning along the sheet's edges, well away from the map image.
