Striking example of Ortelius' map of Sicily, from Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, the first modern atlas of the world.

Includes an inset map of Syracuse and a list of the towns in the lower left. Sea monsters and ships are depicted in the seas.

Ortelius based this map on Gastaldi's 1545 map of Sicily.
