Description "Pamphilia et Pisidia," Amsterdam, c. 1730, hand-colored engraving, map by Nicolas Sanson, published by Johannes Covens and Cornelius Mortier

This rare map of southern Asia Minor (present-day Turkey) comprises the ancient provinces of Pamphilia and Pisidia (now modern Antalya Province), shown here as they were at the time of Emperor Trajan's death in 117 CE. The principal cities of the coastal province of Pamphilia were Perga and Attalia (modern Antalya), both of which were visited by the Apostle Paul. He also famously visited the city of Antioch in Pisidia, where he gave his first sermon to the Gentiles as recounted in Acts 13 in the Bible.
