Comment:

Note how the restorer applied his translucent blue paint thinly in this area. The paint has worn off, exposing the layer below.

Note also how the engraving in this area seems relatively rough, suggesting perhaps it was done at a different time or even represents a manuscript revision. Comparison with the Rome globe, though, shows the area to be identical, confirming that it is engraved. See link for comparative images of the Giovio Globe and the Rome Globe.
