Map the World

Where would we be without a map? Early world maps helped explorers navigate the ends of the earth. The earliest known world map is the Babylonian Imago Mundi, which was most probably made around 6th centry BCE. The map shows Babylon on the river Euphrates. A circular landmass surrounds it.

On the landmass, you can see the cities of Assyria and Urartu as well as some other cities. In turn, these are surrounded by the “bitter river” Oceanus. Around Oceanus are seven islands, which form a seven-pointed star. There is text that comes with the map, that says that there are seven outer regions out of reach, over the ocean.

We know about descriptions of five of the islands. The third island is so far away that birds cannot reach it. On the fourth island, the light is even more dazzling than sunrise or the stars. It can be found to the northwest. After sunset in the summer, the island can barely be seen. The fifth island can be found in the north. Here, no one can see anything.
