Looking through the internet (ya, I know, Bored at work again), and I found this 'cool' map of the City of Troy through the ages:

Other cool maps/images I located are at http://rst.gsfc.nasa.gov/Sect4/Sect4_1.html

The same image of Troy can be found on Page 5. There are lots of images of cities and a few maps scattered throughout, but some good map images are:

Pompie: http://www.archaeology.org/interactive/pompeii/maps.html

and

Some other Cool Maps. The Palace of King Minos of Knossos (He of the Legend or Theseus and the Minotaur) http://www.explorecrete.com/Knossos/knossos.html

An Circa 1818 map of Sparta:

But this is the coolest find I cam across:

U. The history of cartography (http://www.martinfrost.ws/htmlfiles/thales1.html#U) Within there are some images of some of the oldest know maps ever!
