It has even been suggested that the ‘map of Agrippa’ was actually a monumental inscription; that is, a purely textual document with no cartographic accompaniment; see K. Brodersen, Terra Cognita: Studien zur römischen Raumerfassung (Hildesheim: G. Olms, 1995, 2nd edn. 2003), 275ff. 36 Jesse Simon a chorography of the world would be possible only once the limits of the world itself had been properly assessed. By representing the world not according to mathematical speculation, but according to information collected ﬁrst-hand, Agrippa’s map – and those world chorographies that may have preceded it – may be understood as an afﬁrmation that the limits of the world were no longer hypothetical, for their existence had been proven by experience.
Servius, Ad Aen. 532. Servius, Ad Aen. 30. Vat. Lat. 4929. For a discussion of the manuscript tradition, see P. Parroni Pomponii Melae, pp. 55–81. Priscian (Grammatici Latini, vol. 2, ed. H. 82 (Cicero). The work is mentioned in the tenth-century Suidae Lexicon, 4 (Leipzig: Teubner, 1935), 26. 65 While the word itself may not appear with great frequency, there is a number of surviving geographical texts from Late Antiquity which display a chorographical approach. 69 The idea that an emperor would send out four men (one for each cardinal point) rather than three (one for each continent) immediately strikes one as anachronistic: while the cardinal points would have been important within land surveying and theoretical geography, they may not have had as much relevance to the prevailing concept of the world as an island of three continents.
Ptolemy warns that the display of gathered information (ἐφοδευόμενα, or information which has been collected through exploration) will result in an unbalanced map, with some areas crowded with description and others virtually empty. ’56 Ptolemy specifically cites geographers who have drawn Europe larger than Asia or Libya, simply because there was more information to be accommodated. If Ptolemy’s criticisms are true, it would seem that the desire for chorographical information had superseded the desire for geographical accuracy.
