About Antique Maps of Europe

About the Classical Antiquity maps on this page:
– Retreat of the Ten Thousand: The Ten Thousand were a group of mainly Greek mercenaries led by Cyrus the Younger in his attempt to wrest the throne of the Persian Empire from his brother, Artaxerxes II. Their march to the Battle of Cunaxa and retreat to Greece (401–399 BC) is told by Xenophon in his Anabasis.

– Hannibal’s Route: One of Hannibal’s most famous achievements was at the outbreak of the Second Punic War (218 to 201 BC), when he marched an army, which included elephants, from Iberia over the Pyrenees and the Alps into Italy.

– Travels of St. Paul: Geography relevant to St. Paul’s life, c.AD 5 – c.AD 67. After his conversion Paul travelled on three missionary journeys preaching about Jesus.

– Roman Empire: The Roman Empire reached it greatest extent in AD 117 under Trajan (Marcus Ulpius Traianus), Emperor from 98 to 117 CE. Trajan was a highly successful general and won three major conflicts against the Dacians and in the East, resulting in the Roman Empire reaching its greatest size up to that date.
