(symbol, no name, no. 56)

Feature type: symbol G4, no name

Segment grid: 8C3

Color image of immediate environs of unnamed place with reference number 56

The mapmaker must surely have named Alexandria, but where is less obvious. If he placed its symbol as close to the shoreline as it appears in our copy, then he would have been unable to adhere to his regular practice of placing such a name above its symbol and on land (rather than in open water).

Onward stretch:

  • (no distance figure) Ermvpoli
    • The linework for this stretch is not marked.
    • No doubt the mapmaker did link unnamed symbol #56 and Ermvpoli, but our copy preserves no trace of such a stretch.
    • River crossing: (river, no. 107b)
