I am currently reading Bötticher's Historiae antiquae epitome
and am constantly encountering references to places in ancient Greece etc. Therefore I am looking for hi-res maps of ancient Greece (and Asia Minor during that time) and the ancient Roman world.
There are many maps floating around on the Internet. However, I am looking for hi-res
maps so that the place labels can be read without major difficulty. And those seem to be quite scarce.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? (And no, the free maps provided by the Ancient World Mapping Center
are not quite detailed enough).
PS: I can recommend Bötticher's opus
as a nice warm-up before turning to the "ancients".
PPS: Have a look at the web-site Omnes viae
which presents a Google-maps based map with Roman locations (based on the Tabula Peutingeriana and the Itinerarium Antonini). It allows the creation of an itinerary
between two places. Wicked!
