This is the 1564 edition of Ruscelli's Ptolemaic map of parts of India and China. The northern reaches of the Ganges are clearly named as are Scythia and the city of Saca (not comparable with modern-day Saca). The map was published in "La Geografia Di Claudio Tolomeo Alessandrino ...", in which Ruscelli produced Gastaldi's earlier maps (of 1548) in a larger format. With Italian text to the verso.
