    The title promises me 15 altered maps, but I only see one.

    Who the hell is Juan de Fuca and why is he special enough to get a plate named after him?

    As it turns out, the plate is named after the Juan de Fuca strait right nearby, which was discovered by an ionian explorer Ioannes Foukas in service of Spain, who discovered that strait in the late 1500s

    Foukas? Fokas would be a far more legitimate/known surname of the times (and later) :)

    Yea, you're right. I memorised the name incorrectly.
    His name was Ioánnis Phokás or Ιωννης Φωκς

    I think you've left out the alpha from his surname.
