The 1569 Mercator map of the world.

[Image: Mercator_1569.png]

So the OP map stems from somewhere between 1500 and 1569.

The map you posted still has Hyperborea included and Op's map is dated 1680ish, but it was looks like it was colorized and cropped with a graphics program.

High resolution version of Op's map can be found here.

Correction. OP'S map is from 1689 when they colorized it. Someone made a video on it.

There's two lines. One looks like it's the equator. What is the other. I need a clue.

The other line runs right by/through Gwadar off the coast of Pakistan

I have a question.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get away from people who ask if it came first or the egg.
