This map of Cuba comes from 'Geographia Cl. Ptolemaei Alexandrini Olim a Bilibaldo Pirckheimherio traslata..' by PTOLEMY, Claudio and MOLETO, Giuseppe. And published in Venice by Vincenzo Valgrisi, in 1562.

Giuseppe Moleto (Josephus Moletius) (1531-1588) was an Italian mathematician who based the text of this edition on the 1525 translation by Wilibald Pirckheimer. Moleto's draws upon Ruscelli's enlarged maps of his 1561 edition, which in turn, were based upon those by Jacopo Gastaldi.
