I have added a reference to one of the treasures kept in The European Library. If you believe this is a wrong move, please explain me why. Thanks! Trust me - I will remove it myself if necessary. Fleurstigter 10:29, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Date of redrawn map?[edit]

Are we sure that it's 15th century? The lettering seems at least 300 years older than that, if not 400 to me. -- Michael Scott Cuthbert (talk) 13:43, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Not to question your palaeographic chops, but, yeah, pretty sure. — LlywelynII 12:28, 10 March 2015 (UTC)


This edit established the usage of the page as BCE/CE. Kindly maintain it consistently, pending a new consensus. Better still, just omit the term. Nothing involved is BC, so there's no need to bring in the terms. — LlywelynII 05:58, 13 March 2015 (UTC)



Regardless, this page shouldn't exist. This is no "Ptolemaic world map": there are only (various) mediaeval maps reconstructed from Ptolemy's rediscovered text, for which we have a separate article. — LlywelynII 06:36, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
