    Recently I was going through history books in a book store for used books and came upon book (Atlas of Ancient History 1700 BC - 565 AD by Michael Grant) that while slightly old, was published in 1983, had a variety of maps on different subjects of the Ancient world with a primary focus on the Mediterranean.

    Here is the first batch of scanned maps, mostly chosen at random. Will be posting more once I have time to scan them later in the week. Please remember that some of the maps are no doubt out of date and not entirely accurate because of recent discoveries.
