Herodotus' view of the map of the world was different from our own view.  Today we have scientific tools which the ancients did not have.

H.G. Wells - in his book The Outline of History:  Being a Plain History of Life and Mankind - includes a map depicting how Herodotus viewed the world.  You can find it at page 287 of his book.
