Period Paper is pleased to offer a collection of superb lithographed and relief block maps which highlight the spread of the Roman Empire throughout its expansion and the reigns of leaders such as Diocletian and Julius. It explores the territory and provinces as they would have been during Hannibal's crossing and the Roman Civil Wars, and provides a unique look at Gaul and the Mediterranean during this epic time in European history. It's uncommon to find these prints online, as they come from a limited edition (396th out of the 750 that were produced), and their overall quality and incredible condition speak for themselves.
