TABULA PEUTINGERIANA

WITH ITS TRACES IN THE OTTOMAN AND TURKISH GEOGRAPHY

2000-YEAR ROADMAP OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE

FACSIMILE EDITION

The only copy of the map, the construction of which began in the Roman period between the first and third centuries AD, was found in Colmar (France) in 1265.  Today it is preserved in the Austrian (Vienna) State Library. Since it coincided with the collapse of the Western Roman Empire and the founding of the Roman (Byzantine) Empire at that time, Constantinople was mapped as the most important center in the world, equivalent to Rome. 

 

Antiochia (Antakya) is shown on the map as the third largest city in the world. Nicomedia (Izmit) and Nicea (Iznik), which served as the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire for a short time, are also among the important cities of the 7-meter-long map.

 ​ ​

The Turkish Edition of the Tabula Peutingeriana Map was prepared by Bulent Ozukan, with special explanations for the traces in the Ottoman and Turkish geography. The pages printed and bound with special techniques in the Boyut Collection series, prepared as a fasimile edition, form a 7-meter-long one-piece map when opened. The other pages of the map, known as Tabula Peutingeriana, contain information about the studies carried out in universities in European countries. 

 ​ ​

It seems that it was prepared as a "road map" of the known world during the Roman Empire period. The Peutinger Map, created by combining 12 different scrolls, includes 555 settlements and accommodation cities, 154 of which are in the Ottoman geography.  Over 3500 geographical naming has been made. Accommodation structures in these cities are placed on the map with around 30 building icons that have different meanings.  The map shows approximately 104,000 km of road routes.
