998 – Henricus Martinellus: Insularium 1490 and other maps

Yet another old map of Mount Athos on parchment from the library of the University of Leiden, appr. 1490.
Just as the Buondelmondi map it does not show a fysical reality of the Holy Mountain (thanks to Vasilis).

Another map of Athos, without any futher information.

A map of Chalkidiki: the voyage of Proust.

Millo map from 1590, already shown in 569.

Wim, 14/2

And here a bonus, a video of a Athos trip of Greek pilgrims,which I cannot embed (also thanks to Vasilis).
