Tangier (Tangia), Alexandria (Alessandria), Cairo (Cayro), Damascus (Damasco), and Mecca are among the cities located. Sicily and parts of Sardinia and Crete are shown, and three ships appear in the Mediterranean in the bottom section. There are intricate and beautiful small illustrations of palm trees, ostriches, a lion, an elephant, and a long line of soldiers pepper the continent, and wonderfully complement the map.
