In black, below the symbol for this range: "Hij montes svbiacent palvdi simili meotidi p(er) qvem nilvs transit" / "These mountains skirt a marsh - comparable to the Maeotis - through which the Nile flows." The "montes" meant here are perhaps not these ones, but the range surrounding the lake (#13). For "meotis," compare lake #14.
