Description: This is a scarce 1867 map of southern Greece during ancient times by William Hughes. The map covers the entire Peloponnese Peninsula including ancient Attica and parts of ancient Boeotia. The map notes several roads, towns and cities and uses both contemporary and ancient names - an invaluable resource for scholars of antiquity. Following the Battle of Corinth in 146 BC, the Greek peninsula came under Roman rule. The period from 31 BC and AD 180 in Greek history is described as the era of theÂ¬â€ Pax Romana. This was a period of peace and security when many Greek cities flourished, leading to cultural and economic progress. The classical period in Greek history, which lasted from the 5th century B.C. through the 4th century B.C. greatly influenced the Roman Empire's politics, art, architecture, philosophy and literature. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, Greece became the center of the Eastern Roman or Byzantium Empire. This map was created by William Hughes, printed by J. Bien and engraved by G.E. Sherman, for issued as plate 18 in Sheldon and Company's An Atlas of Classical Geography. Size: Printed area measures 10 inches high by 13 inches wide. Condition: Very good.
