This map of the Roman Empire was scanned from pages 16 & 17 of a 1925 reprint of the 1907 Atlas of Ancient and Classical Geography in the Everyman Library, published by J.M. Dent & Sons Ltd. and is, by Canadian copyright law, in the public domain, to the best of my knowledge. The original scan was done at 300 dpi in 24 bit colour, resulting in a very large file of uncompressed data and 1.1 MB as a compressed JPEG file. I have edited the image to remove the blank margins of the two pages (some remnants of that process inevitably remain). During the preparation of the smaller maps and the two levels of detailed maps, I have worked with the high resolution scanned image, with the reductions in resolution applied as the final stage, to create files of reasonable size and images of high quality.
East Germanic Goths from Gotland (Sweden) migrate towards the Black Sea. In A.D. 257 they split into Ostro-Goths and Visi-Goths.
