Striking example of Ortelius' map of the Celtic Empire, from Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terraum, first published in 1570.
This map first appeared in the 1595 edition of the atlas, and is believed to be derived from Ortelius' 2 sheet map of the Roman Empire issued in 1571, and classical sources, including Salustius, Plinius, Herodotus, Strabo and Dionysius.
The map was later copied by Janssonius, with different cartouches, in the middle of the 17th Century.
