A very scarce small map of Cyprus drawn by Ubonis Emmii and based on the Parergon map of Ortelius. Its shape is rather deformed and it has fewer ancient contents than the map of Ortelius. Emmius was a cartographer who worked with Hondius and Jansson. This map, engraved by Petrus Kaerius, appears only in the edition of this popular geography published by Jansson.
