Islands of the Argo-saronic Gulf

Maps of the islands of the Argo-Saronic gulf (Salamis, Aegina, Poros, Hydra and Spetses were included in the first isolaria in manuscript and in print, and later in Atlases and port indexes.

Salamis, which became immortalized due to the famous naval battle between Greeks and Persians (480 BCE), is depicted in illustrations showing panoramic views from Athens or Aegina.

Aegina and the impressive temple of Aphaia attracted travellers and provided several subjects for illustrations. In the 19th century, besides the antiquities there is also a tendency to render more detailed scenes from everyday life, as Aegina is by now the first capital of the Greek State.

An influential travel writer toured Hydra in the late 18th century and made drawings of its sights. In the 19th century, the dynamic involvement of Hydra's inhabitants in the Greek Revolution gave inspiration to illustrated travel accounts, which were published after the revolution.

There are also some maps of Poros as well as views and depictions of local costume, and two maps showing the anchorages of Spetses.
