This authentic antique hand-colored map depicts ancient Thrace with placenames, showing the military road from Apollonia to Maronea. The Pontus, Propontis and Aegean are noted.
Another splendid Weigel cartouche gracing the upper left quadrant features a harpist, perhaps Orfeo, playing a harp and surrounded by flora and fauna.
