Below the formal title of this drawing, at the bottom right margin, an annotation tells the reader that ascertained altitudes are in red ink and estimated altitudes in black. Combined with colour washes depicting relief, these numerical annotations describe the contours and heights of the hills. Archaeological sites are named in gothic script and an area calculation table survives in black ink.
