The map design for Candia Insula, typical for the exaggerated bay seperating the promontory, was apparently created by Abraham Ortelius in 1584, and then used both by him and and Gerhard Mercator for their geographical atlases. Because of the popularity of these atlases and their recurring reprints and copies by other cartographers/geographers, this coastal outline for Crete was still used near the end of the 17th century.

Where possible, please use the publishing dates as keys, and name the cartographers/publishers.
