Chapter Six, “Classical and Medieval Encircling Oceans” considers specifically the influence of Greco-Roman and subsequent medieval European cartographic traditions from the perspective of the Encircling Ocean form. The chapter works forward in time to medieval maps of European origin, culminating with a remarkable example of intersection between medieval Islamic and European maps.
