SYRIAE, Johannes Jansonius (1658)Syria was in the 17th century part of the Turkish Empire. Because of continual war, the knowledge of the country was limited. This becomes clear in cartography. For this map of Syria Johannes Janssonius (1588-1664) did not have recent sources. He probable relied on a 16th-century map by the Italian cartographer Giacomo Gastaldi (1500-1566).
