Care to explain how/why?this map that you create not accurate,
Note the term "contemporary" in "contemporary Seleucid Empire and Han Dynasty" -- that is, referring to the Han Dynasty of about 200 bc, which covered an area of about 2.5 million sq km, not the late Western or Eastern Han. In any case, even the Han Dynasty as shown in the above maps covered about 4.7 million square kilometres, not 6.5 million, so still a fair bit less than the Xiongnu (assuming the map in the OP is correct):during han dynasty height of power, han dynasty owned northern xinjiang of dzungar basin, during han dynasty peak of power are roughly 6.500.000km2
Google Earth is free by the way, if you ever need to measure anything.
