The Parergon is Ortelius' atlas of ancient geography. Koeman: "This atlas
of ancient geography must be regarded as a personal work of Ortelius. For this work he
did not, as in the Theatrum, copy other people's maps but drew the originals
himself which were later engraved by John Wierix i.a. He took many places and regions
from the lands of classical civilization to illustrate and clarify their history, a
subject very close to his heart... The maps and plates of the Parergon have to be
evaluated as the most outstanding engravings depicting the wide-s[read interest in
classical geography in the 16th century."
