The engraver has noted the word TELONIUM in the sea area below the port. This word comes from the latin, meaning an excise duty paid by merchants, or a toll. From a book by A. M. Myller recounting his travels from 1725 to 1727. Myller journeyed from Rome to Jerusalem then on to Troy, Gallipoli and Constantinople. From Constantinople he travelled to Egypt and then to Syria.
