The Nile domates, shown from the Cataracts Syene to the Mediterranean Sea. Great deal of detail is shown, including the pyramids, the Natron valley, rivers, cities, roads, oases etc. Both ancient (underscored) and contemporary place names are included. A table gives the Nomorum, or administrative districts of Upper and Lower Egypt, which are depicted by Roman numerals on the map. Published in London by Robert Sayer.
