Tabula Peutingeriana

Salvete,

We all know: All roads lead to Rome… And with a good map, it goes certainly faster.

Here is 2 links where each roman traveller can find a copy of the famous Peutinger map (Tabula Peutingeriana).

As a reminder, the Peutinger map is a medieval copy of a roman map made somewhere between the first and the 4th century AD (Pompeii its still present - part V - and Constantinople is already built - part VIII).

The original Peutinger map from the 13th century made on 12 parchment scrolls (the first one - Mauritania, Hispania and Britannia - is missing):

The facsimile of Konrad Miller in 1887 (5 files of about 30 Mb to download):

A "smaller" version of the reproduction of Konrad Miller with the reconstructed missing first panel made:
