Years ago I read that civilizations had maps like that of the Herodotus, who was an ancient Greek historian. Said maps named lands or peoples according to cardinal directions, but without referring to them as a continent or an ethnicity. Besides the Herodotus maps, I only know of the below Chinese maps. Does anyone know of any other such maps?
To to clear, the person/civilization didn't actually have to draw maps necessarily. They only had to name lands according to cardinal points. If I'm not mistaken, one of the societies that did that was the Persians.
