Only one thing about the ancient mapmakers... they were ancient, yes, but not stupid!!!
As far as i know, they astrologycal knowledge was pretty developed: it's enough to think that Mayans and Sumerians have calculated the orbital paths
of our planets, and predicted their positions even in our days.
So, it's not so hard to believe they had means and instruments to see solar systems very far far away.
Or, of course, somebody from that solar system explained them how to find it...
