The Tabula Peutingeriana (Peutinger table, Peutinger Map)
is an plan showing the road network in the Roman Empire. The map covers
Europe, North Africa and parts of Asia. The map is named after Konrad Peutinger, a German 15–16th century humanist and antiquarian. The map was
discovered in a library in Worms by Conrad Celtes, who was unable to
publish his find before his death and bequeathed the map in 1508 to
Peutinger. It is conserved at the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, Hofburg, Vienna.
site included on this page is from the University of Applied Science,
Augsburg, Germany. The site provides 3 different views of the map
- the first, 'manuscripti segmentorum I, VII', displays the original manuscript and an enlargement of segment VII; the second 'facsimile Marci Velseri, segmentum VI' displays a copy of the map made in 1598 by Marci Velseri, while the third 'Conradi Milleri facsimile totum'
allows you to view a complete copy of the original made in 1887. This third option
splits the map into 14 segments. The middle of Segment VII is the area
around Neapolis, Herculaneum, Pompeii and Stabiae. You can move through
the various parts of the map by either selecting a particular segment from the list of
segments available, or by using the porro, retro links to move back and forwards.
