Mad Greeg Map Key
For more information see: The Lost Secret Treasure of Mad Greeg
The map is very old, has broken and has been repaired. It comes inside a cover with a small cord and two black skull tokens. The cover has some markings in it. The inscriptions in the cover are: A letter “G.”, a drawing on ink of a black skull with white eyes, and a set of a circle, a semi-circle and three dots.
This version of the map was made by Benedetto Difusallo to mark the symbols and riddles to be translated and solved. Riddles A to M are in the front of the map and riddle N is in the back. In the back of the map there is also the name “Greeg”.
