Hello once again,
A small addendum to the previous post. Meanwhile, Dr Megan Barford from the Greenwich Maritime Museum very kindly answered to my email
and wrote that we definitely read on the globe Gibraltar Cape Saint Vincent. Meanwhile, she also noticed that the first word, although hardly legible, should be related to the latin word for strait: fretum. Therefore, it seems toldly logical to propose the following reading: fretum Herculeum, Gibraltar, Cape Saint Vincent, as fretum Herculeum, being the Strait of Gibraltar.
I will look forward your comments.
All the best. Sincerely yours. Alexandre Solcà
