What is the world's oldest (known) printed map?

From the story:
"The oldest printed map in the world, printed in 1450s in Germany but originally crafted in 150 B.C., is akin to a pie chart – Europe, Africa and Asia, neatly divided and surrounded by oceans, and linked to Noah’s three sons."

I haven't found a picture of it yet...
