The stock image portrays the locations and landmarks relevant to the story of the prophet Jonah in the Hebrew Bible. The map is centered on the ancient city of Nineveh, which was the capital of the Assyrian Empire and the destination of Jonah’s reluctant mission. Other significant locations depicted on the map include the port city of Joppa, from which Jonah set sail, and the city of Tarshish, which he initially intended to flee to instead of going to Nineveh.

The map also shows the approximate location of the “great fish” that swallowed Jonah and carried him back to the shores near Nineveh after he was thrown overboard.

Additionally, the map includes other notable cities in the region, such as Ashur and Babylon, which were major centers of power during the time period of the story.
