Based on Philippe Galle’s portrait of Petrus Apianus from 1572, the present portrait of the cartographer was made by German printmaker Wolfgang Philipp Kilian and published in 1728. It shows the original image of Apianus wearing robes and holding an orb, but Kilian has also added a device in the upper right-hand corner and Latin text beneath the image listing his many accomplishments.
