There are a number of alpha-numeric keys and remarks on the points of interest in the area, including the ‘burying places’ for the various peoples, including Armenians, Moors, Portuguese, Pagans, and Jews. Ships skim along the shore in the foreground. The map was engraved by Herman Moll and published in Thomas Salmon’s ‘Modern History’. Shirley (BL Atlases) G.Salm-1c 8.
