Peutinger table. A section of the historic Peutinger table (also known as the Tabula Peutingeriana), which was a 13th century copy of a Roman map. Roads and cities are depicted but the work, which was cut into 12 sections, was heavily elongated - leading to it appearing squashed in the North-South direction. The copy was produced by a Monk named Colmar, in Alsace, and was 6 metres wide by 30 centimetres tall in dimensions. It is thought to be based on an original map dating from around the 5th Century. Taken from A Book of Discovery, M.B. Synge (1912).
