This handsome and detailed map is derived from Delisle's map of the region. It focuses on the northern part of the Greek peninsula and extends to include parts of present-day Albania, Bulgaria, and Turkey. The map features many ancient place names, including the ancient kingdoms of Macedonia, Thracia, and Thessalia. Political boundaries, cities, early roads, rivers, and topography are all identified. This map appeared in many editions; this example was printed for T. Bowles, John Bowles, and Robert Sayer.
