Description

Fine example of this detailed map of Ancient Arabia and contiguous regions, excerpted from the Spruner-Menke Atlas of Antiquity.

The map illustrates the region centered on the Arabian Peninsula, relying upon historical information from antiquity to show ancient place names, trade routes and other details.

Bahrain (and Qatar) are called Raema with the town of Rhegma shown. The area which is now Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, etc. is called Macae, a place name used by Strabo.
