Antique map of the world after that of Eratosthenes, the founder of geography. This is one of several historical maps Marmocchi did from the perspectives of the grandfathers of geography, among them Ptolemy, Pomponius Mela, and Herodotus.

Nubia is labeled as the "Land of Cinnamon" as in Ancient Greece, the original source of cinnamon was thought to be Africa or Arabia, much nearer to the traders on the Mediterranean coast from whom they acquired it. Thule, proposed by Pytheas of Massalia as the most northerly part of Europe, is posited as being north of Scotland.
