Map of the Old World with Latin text. The title is Antiquissima Orbis Delineatio (ancient world map). The level of geographical knowledge is similar to that until the 15th century. The map shows: Europe (yellow), North Africa (red), West-Central Asia (green) and a southern area (yellow, Antichthones: antipodes). Named regions include: Mare Interius (middle sea: Mediterranean), Mare Eoum (eastern sea), Scythae (Scythia: Central Asia), Persae (Persia) and Indi (India). Forests, mountains and rivers are shown. The equator is an ocean of warm water. The Nile has a western and southern branch; the latter from the Mountains of the Moon (Montes Lunae). Catalogued: US Library of Congress (1905).
