Wilderlands and the Eastern Med

I've been working on my article for Knockspell, which is about Byzantium/Constantinople as it can be used in gaming, so I haven't done any blogging today or yesterday, but in the course of writing the article I was once again reminded of how the Wilderlands of High Fantasy map is essentially the Eastern Mediterranean rotated counterclockwise by 90 degrees.

In the image above, I have rotated it back. :)
The image below is the real-life western Mediterranean:
