Not a single old paper map presents those exact words—“Here be dragons”— in the margins or otherwise. Nor does any paper map include “Hic sunt dracones,” the words’ Latin equivalent.   But a globe does.  That’s right: One globe—just one—contains the words "Hic sunt dracones". Called the Hunt-Lenox Globe, it was built in 1510, one of the first European globes ever made. It’s 5" and made of copper. The Hunt-Lenox Globe contains the famous warning on the southeast coast of Asia.

No Old Maps Actually Say 'Here Be Dragons'

The Lenox Globe, c the only early map which actually uses the now famous cartographic phrase “here be dragons” (hic sunt dracones). It’s located on the east coast of Asia, underneath the label for India.
