Anyone know where I can get ahold of a map, which covers Europe, around 300 B.C? It must show all the different kingdoms and "countries" that existed back then, and preferably also vaguely place out where "gaulish" tribes ruled, and where "Germanic" tribes ruled.

I haven't had any luck, myself.

Thank ye, kindly. Now, at least, I've got the names of most of the tribes! But,I was wondering, two things:

Above Greece, it appears to be celtic territory. But wasn't this controlled by Macedon, and Thrace to the north west? Do the Thracians count as barbarians?

And in Asia Minor, there's full of tribes. Wasn't this a successor state area, which was owned by some of the Diadochi? Then, wouldn't it count as civilized territory?

The map in some ways is over generalized.  It assumes that most of Anatolia, Thrace, Macedonia, and Illyria were under Celtic control.  Celtic tribes actually gained control of eastern Illyria by about 350 BC and much of Thrace and Phrygia after 280 BC, but they never controlled Macedonia.  At best, they invaded Macedonia into central Greece but were defeated and retreated back into Thrace.  In 300 BC, Thrace was the dominion of Lysimachus,  Macedonia was the dominion of Cassander, and Paeonia was independent.  In the north, the culture of northern Germany and Denmark is of a different tradition then the La Tene Culture characteristic of the Celts and is considered Germanic.  In the east Celtic culture does not seem to have gone beyond the Oder down to the Carpathians, except that part of the southern Carpathians which extended to the Dniester. 

For Greece and Asia try this map:

Sort off, but not entirely. I'm looking for a map spanning across all of europe, not just the hellenistic world. Of course, the one you guys posted is still a big help. So thank you for that. Basicly, the hellenistic world is covered then.

Any maps over Carthaginian and Roman territories? Know where those can be found?
