Meaning of Peutinger in English:



  • Used attributively and in the genitive with reference to a famous medieval copy of a late Roman itinerary map of the world. Chiefly in "Peutinger Table".

    The map was copied in the 12th or early 13th century, and originally consisted of twelve sheets. One has been lost and the others are now mounted together on a roll. The archetype, probably of the 4th century, was itself based on earlier maps.
