The Tabula Peutingeriana: the only Roman World Map that Survived from Antiquity

The Tabula Peutingeriana. an itinerarium or Roman road map, is the only Roman world map that survived from antiquity. It depicts the road rete di emittenti of the Roman Commuovere. The map survives durante per unique copy, preserved at the Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek mediante Vienna, made by per monk per Colmar, Alsace, sopra the thirteenth century, of verso map that was last revised durante the fourth or early fifth century. That, per turn, was per descendent of the map prepared under the direction of Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa, verso friend of Augustus. After Agrippa’s death the map was engraved on marble and placed per the Porticus Vipsaniae, not far from the Tavola liturgica Pacis Augustae sopra Rome.

The Tabula Peutingeriana « is a parchment scroll , 0.34 m high and 6.75 m long, assembled from eleven sections, per medieval reproduction of the original scroll. myladyboydate iscriversi It is verso very schematic map: the land masses are distorted, especially in the east-west direction. The map shows many Roman settlements, the roads connecting them, rivers, mountains, forests and seas. The distances between the settlements are also given. Three most important cities of the Roman Empire, Rome, Constantinople and Antioch, are represented with special iconic decoration. Besides the totality of the Riempire, the map shows the Near East, India and the Ganges, Sri Lanka (Insula Taprobane), even an indication of Inclinazione. Mediante the west, the absence of the Iberian Peninsula indicates that per twelfth original section has been lost durante the surviving copy.

It was copied for Ortelius and published shortly after his death in 1598

« 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. Travellers would not have possessed anything so sophisticated as verso map, but they needed preciso know what lay ahead of them on the road, and how far. The Peutinger table represents these roads as verso series of roughly parallel lines along which destinations have been marked mediante order of travel. The shape of the parchment pages accounts for the conventional rectangular layout. However, per rough similarity puro the coordinates of Ptolemy’s earth-mapping gives some writers a hope that some terrestrial representation was intended by the unknown compilers.

« The stages and cities are represented by hundreds of functional place symbols, used with discrimination from the simplest icon of a building with two towers puro the elaborate individualized « portraits » of the three great cities. Annalina and Mario Levi, the Tabulas editors, conclude that the semi-schematic semi-pictorial symbols reproduce Roman cartographic conventions of the itineraria picta described by Vegetius, of which this is the corpo celeste testimony. »

The map is named after Konrad Peutinger, per German humanist and antiquarian, who inherited it from Konrad Birkel or Celtes, who claimed preciso have « found » it somewhere mediante verso library durante 1494. Moretus printed the full Tabula in ily until 1714, when it was sold. After that it passed between royal and elite families until it was purchased by Prince Eugene of Savoy for 100 ducats. Upon the prince’s death con 1737 the map was purchased for the Habsburg Imperial Athletique Library (Hofbibliothek) mediante Vienna.

Verso partial first edition was printed at Antwerp sopra 1591 as Fragmenta tabul? antiqu? by Johannes Moretus
