The map shows the five cities of the Philistine Pentapolis: Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Gath, and Ekron. The image also highlights the surrounding areas of the Shephelah and the foothills of the Judaean Mountains.

This region was a significant battleground during the time of the Israelite monarchy and was home to many famous battles, including the battle between David and Goliath.

The map also shows the location of key biblical sites such as Ziklag, where David sought refuge from Saul, and Tel Miqne, the site of the ancient Philistine city of Ekron.
