This eye catching copperplate engraved map covers portions of Greece and Asia Minor, and was published by Covens & Mortier in Amsterdam in 1725. It’s based on an earlier issue by the influential French cartographer Guillame Delisle, who is duly credited in the title block.
The map presents a historical account of the eastern portion of the Roman Empire (it had not yet split), apparently during the rule of Emperor Trajan (c. 110 AD). Trajan presided over a number of successful campaigns in the region during his reign, which saw the empire reach its maximum territorial expansion.
