Shown here are three continents in more or less symmetrical arrangements with Asia in the east at the top of the map (hence the term orientation).
Although the term chorographia literally means “regional topography”, it seems to include fairly detailed cartography of the known world. These sections are largely identical with passages in Pliny’s geographical books (Books III to VI), and show that many passages in Pliny are taken from Agrippa beyond those where he is actually named.
Schnabel here refers to the last chapter of the geographical books of Pliny’s Natural History, that is, Book VI, cap.
From another well-known passage in Strabo (V, 3, 8, C, 235-236) that contains a panegyric [a public speech or published text in praise of someone or something] on the fine buildings of Augustan Rome, we know that he was well acquainted with the dedications of Marcus Agrippa that he specifically mentions. The new found design also provides for the first time insights into the inspiration for key design aspects on the mappaemundi such as the tribute to Jesus at the top of the map, the transition from a separate commentary requiring locative terminology to commentary overlain onto the mappaemundi no longer requiring spatial references, and the distribution of images from a consolidated arced matrix lying above Africa on Schoner’s design to areas throughout the mappaemundi.
The general history of ancient cartography and our knowledge of Roman buildings in the Augustan period would appear to be our surest guides.
39, section 211, refers obviously to all that follows as far as the end of Book VI and shows that the complete passage is taken from Greek sources. This method Ptolemy has described quite clearly and unambiguously in the fourth chapter of Book I of his Geography.


He was, therefore, well acquainted also with the map or Agrippa to which, or to whose content he refers no less than seven times in his Books II, V and VI. The mappaemundi maintained this orientation because medieval Christians held Eden, which they believed resided in the east, in high esteem. His chief pride would seem to have been in his measurements, and indeed it is only for the exactness of these that Pliny praises him when he refers to B?tica in Book III, 17.
Ancient Roman maps like the Peutinger Table, however, oriented the map with north to the top similar to the reconstruction based on Schoner’s design. The date at which the building was started is not known, but it was still incomplete in 7 B.C. But whether it was only intended to be imagined by readers or was actually illustrated in the book is not clear. It appears from passages in Pliny that Varro had already used the Roman itineraries in his geographical books and Agrippa was only following his example. The same applies to possible cartographic illustration of Varro’s Antiquitates rerum humanarum et divinarum, of which Books VII-XIII dealt with Italy. But at least we know that he was keen on illustration, since his Hebdomades vel de imaginibus, a biographical work in fifteen books, was illustrated with as many as seven hundred portraits.


The two main passages from Strabo’s second book may reasonably be regarded as a transcript of contemporary geographical practice and since between them they give an exact description of the methods followed in the ancient remains of the map of Agrippa, Tierney thinks that they may rightly be regarded as a strong proof that the views held on this map by Detlefsen and Klotz are generally correct. For it was Augustus who, when Agrippa’s sister had begun building the portico, carried through the scheme from the intention and notes [commentarii] of M.

We were once Petey Green, and Al Green Full of Love and Happiness, but the loss of community, self-esteem, and our integrity, we have taken on the characteristics of our oppressors.     REMEMBERING MY BROTHER SGT.
