Description
12 sheet 2 x 2 m map printed in Vienna by François (Franz) Müller, in 1797, reissued corrected the same year. Based on a map of ancient Greece by Guillaume Delisle (Paris 1707), it includes 7 topographical plans for Voyage du jeune Anacharsis en Grèce by Abbé Jean Jacques Barthélemy, published in 1788; a plan of an ancient Greek theatre and a plan of Rhigas’ native Pheres; depictions of 161 Greek, Roman, and Byzantine coins; a wind rose in Greek, Turkish and Lingua franca; the fight between Herakles and the Amazons; etc. The map draws almost entirely on the ancient Greek and Roman pasts, from recent times only Kosovopolje being mentioned, as place of death of Sultan Murad (1389). For Rhigas, Hellas includes all Balkans and even Wallachia. Its citizens should all be equals, irrespective of nationality, language or religion. Therefore, the map is a fascinating cultural artefact.
