     The souvenir sheet issued by Iceland in 2008 is the third and final issue of the Joint Nordic series of Norse mythology. The map is an ancient one of the Snæfellsness area of Iceland. In the upper right corner there is a small index map. The light square on that map indicates the location of the area mapped on the sheet. In addition to the map there are several images of mythological figures: Barður Snæfellsás, a giant who lived in the Cave of Echoes, Þora and Glæsir, the bull.
