An old copperplate map of the territory north of the Black and Azov Seas, in the west to the Eastern Balkans and south to the Bosphorus. Title in the ribbon at the top left with an equestrian scene. Below are 2 length scales. The map well demonstrates the national and territorial complexity of this area 300 years ago. The territory of Ukraine at the then border stretched along the Dnieper and did not have access to both seas and Crimea, with the exception of the Dnieper estuary at present-day Kherson.
