This absolutely rare and very attractive bird's eye view of Rome shows the location of the reconstructed antique buildings, sites etc of antique Rome within and beyond the walls. But it includes for example St. Peter on Mons Vaticanus. This is the first state of this map. Christoph Weigel used it as model for his similar map, which he published in his Atlas Scholasticus in Nuremberg, 1720
