Pannoniae et Illyrici Veteris Tabula

- He is also believed to be the first person to imagine that the continents were joined together before drifting to their present positions.

- Map text is in Latin.
- Cartouche upper leﬅ: "Vis consili expers mole ruit sua". [Violence without judgment collapses under its own weight.]
- Abraham Ortelius dedicates this map in memory of his friendship to Mr. Ludovicus Hallerus of Hallerstein as a wreath for his erudition, candour of mind and true nobility.
- Lower centre: "Cum Gratia et Priuilegio | decennali 1590".[With grace, and a privilege for ten years, 1590].
