"Beschreibung der Lantschafften so die Sogdianer / Margianer und Scythen bewohnen". Woodcut from the "Cosmographia" acording to Ptolomy by Sebastian Münster. Published in Basel 1574. The original map was drawn by
Pomponius Mela, a Roman geographer born in Tingentera, Spain. In 43 A.D. he finished a geographical work first known
as "De situ orbis" and later "De chorographia". After bookprinting became possible this work was widely known.

Just looking at this map arouses interesting thoughts of this area and its history. The Caspian Sea (left middle) and the
Persian Gulf (lower left) give good orientation for this map. The cartouche in the upper left describes the ancient folk
known as Sogdianer while the cartouche in the upper right describes the Margianer who lived east of the Caspian Sea.
The cartouche in the lower right tells about the Scythier who inhabited the northern region and supposedly spread much
further west into central Europe. Notice that in the southeast is part of northern India.
