Map of the Roman Empire, the original dates from the IV century A.D.
The Tabula Peutingeriana (Peutinger table, Peutinger Map) is an illustrated itinerarium (in effect, a road map) showing the cursus publicus, the road network in the Roman Empire. The original map (of which this is a unique copy) was last revised in the fourth or early fifth century. It covers Europe, North Africa and parts of Asia (the Middle East, Persia, India). The map is named after Konrad Peutinger, a German 15–16th-century humanist and antiquarian.
The table appears to be based on "itineraries", or lists of destinations along Roman roads, as the distances between points along the routes are indicated.[
We have reproduced the copy made by Salomon Kleiner in 1753, one of the clearest and best conserved. The first part, including Spain and England, is made in a different color because the original is lost and it's a modern reconstruction.
It's printed in heavy canvas paper and measures 20x400 cms.
