CRETE CANDIA

Code: M3498

Cartographer: PORCACCHI Tomaso

Date: 1572 /+ Venice

Size: 11*15 cms Sheet 29*19 cms

Very attractive detailed early antique map of the Greek Mediterranean island of Candia (Crete or Kriti), the largest island in Greece. This late 16th century map, by Tomasso Porcacchi, shows some of the largest towns on the island at that time: Cania (Chania), Retimo (Rethimno), and Candia (Iraklio). Numeous small islands and islets are named offshore including Morena, Farioni, Paxmando, and Standia. In the stippled sea, empty space is filled with fanciful sea creatures, huge sea snails, crabs, and a three-masted galleon.
