A second huge wall map made for Sardis Verlag, depicting the Mediterranean and the Persian Empire about the year 500 BCE. Unsurpassed in the number of covered cultures and total area. The map was also sold by Sardis Verlag as The Achaemenid Empire and the West and Giant Wall Map of the Persian Empire.
Detailed wall map of the ancient world at the transition between the archaic and classical periods of Mediterranean civilization. The map encompasses the entire territory between the Pillars of Hercules and the Indus valley, between the Hallstatt era Celts in what is now southern Germany and eastern France and the legendary kingdom of Saba in southern Arabia. This includes the Achaemenid Persian Empire at its greatest extend during the reign of Dareios I., 522 – 486 BCE.
