Gulielmo XYLANDRO , "Cyprus" , woodcut (75x120mm) page 779 , , Basle 1571 .

The small woodcut map originated in 1561 in Ioannis Honterus' Cosmographia published in Basle by Henricus Petri . A decade later Petri published G. Xylandro's edition of Srabo's geographical work and the same small map of Cyprus was republished along with five other woodcuts of Greek islands . The map is wholly based on Ptolemy's map of the island . It is printed at the lower part of page 779 where the text on Cyprus begins set in two columns : Greek on one and Latin translation on the other . The contents of the map are ancient but the three main medieval towns of Nicosia , Famagusta and Limassol are also indicated .
