The Roman Empire at its height was enormous. To see it properly requires a larger image than I can provide here, so I'm dividing it where it was divided also in the book (Shepherd's atlas). The Western section of the Roman Empire map includes Britain, Gaul, Spain, Italy, and northern Africa, although even those areas of the Roman Empire that are recognizable as modern nations had somewhat different borders from today. See the next page for the legend, with a list of provinces, prefectures, and dioceses of the Roman Empire at the end of the 4th century A.D. 02 of 03 Eastern Roman Empire Map - A.D. 395 Eastern Roman Empire Map - A.D. 395.

Rodolfo Lanciani/Wikimedia Commons On this topography of Rome map, you'll see numbers telling the height of the area, in meters. The map is labeled hydrography and chorography of ancient Rome. While hydrography may be intuitive — writing about or mapping of the water system, chorography probably isn't. It comes from the Greek words for country (khora) and writing or -graphy and refers to the delineation of districts. Thus this map shows the areas of ancient Rome, its hills, the walls, and more. The book from which this map comes, The Ruins and Excavations of Ancient Rome, was published in 1900. Despite its age, it would be worth reading if you want to know about the topography of ancient Rome, including water, soil, walls, and roads.
