The lower left corner of the scagliola table carries a dedication in French by the mapmaker, Carlo Gibertoni, to Grand Prince Ferdinand de' Medici, son of Cosimo III. The course of the Danube is shown against a white background. There is a fairly detailed description of the areas traversed by the river: towns, tributaries, physical features, etc. The Adriatic coast of Italy, the gulf of Venice, and a portion of the Dalmatian coast are outlined.
