Of particular interest is the absence of marked settlements or ports anywhere along the southern or Arabian, side of the Gulf and the coast-line is strikingly inaccurate as it progresses north east, indicating no intent to visit.  Indeed a large section of the coast is marked as inaccessible.  Also marked on the chart are two relief sketches of mountain ranges clearly visible from the sea.  The first is on the northern shore of the gulf west of the entrance to the River Euphrates (marked ‘A’) at the end northern end of the gulf and the other is on the Oman coastline south of Muscat (roughly marked ‘B’).  Notations that show the location of passes through the hills accompany the two sketches.  Various rivers, including the river ‘Zazarie’ to the north of Abu Dhabi, seem wildly out of proportion.
