Modern cities near the ancient ones are often accepted. Use the zoom!

The map looks amazing! How did you made the lines representing path of journey also become smaller when zoomed in? Was it done by using border class?

If anyone has an idea how I could get rid of the seperate circles for the same city but different journeys, please tell me, I'm quite dissatisfied with the resulting misplacement.

I could make the border of cities visited multiple times black, would that be better? Does anyone have a better idea?

Not sure how difficult this is (not too experienced with SVGs), but maybe have the multiple-journey cities have halves / thirds of the colors?

Still, this is a very good map. Nominated.

I originally did that, but then I can't make them zoomable, which makes the cities harder to identify. Thank you for the nomination!

Amazing quiz!!! I've been looking for this for a while. I've been studying Acts recently so I was able to get them all, and I even made a few quizzes about it. Could you please add more type ins to match the names in Acts? Troy is Troas, Antioch of Pisidia is Pisidian Antioch, etc. I'll come back, I'm out of nominations.

I‘m glad you liked it! I’ll add the type-ins; are there any others you want me to add?

Yeah, the only other one I found was Cnidus for Knidos, but maybe Puteoli as a type-in for Naples because Puteoli is mentioned and Naples isn't and they are very close.

And Cnidus already works, you did well on the type-ins.
