Ortelius. Map the first.

Punctum delens in various places. And several vowels with markings that I do not recognize. And possibly some towns that are hyphenated.

I need to find Ælfwynn. Thought I had her email, but sadly....

@AspiringLuddite - on the Ortelius map I am dealing with -

EPISCOP. SALTSBVRGESIS

I know thats a puntum delens after the P, and I am guessing this has to do with Saltzberg (but I could be wrong)

@liliedubh @AspiringLuddite Well, I don't know where you've found that map, but I found it at:

Or, use:

Anyway, I'm seeing:
EPISCOP. SALTSBVRGĒSIS
I suppect the line on the E is a scribal abbreviation for "followed by an N". It's definitely the Bishopric fo Satzberg.

Anything else on the map you're trying to figure out? My Latin is very rusty, but I'll do what I can. :-)
