Map Showing the Wanderings of Aeneas

The Aeneid of Virgil Book III, edited by Philip Sandford London: Blackie & Son. 1900
Aeneas and the Aeneades leave the burning city of Troy and travel to Italy, but they make many stops in their odyssey. They go to the harbor of Antandros to build ships before they set sail the following year. This first map shows the first half of the area they traveled, from Troy to Thrace, Delos, Crete, the Strophades Islands, Actium in Acarnania, Bathrotum in Epirus, the Portus Veneris in Apulia, and then on to Italy.
