Ottoman forces in 1680 by Marsiglie: timariot provincial levy

A couple of moth ago I obtained a copy of Marsiglie L.F. LEtat Militaire de lEmpire Ottoman. Hague, 1732. It includes description of the Ottoman military troops & their estimated strength.
Estimated strength of the timariot provincial levy (both fief-holders & their cebelu) in 1680-81 after Marsiglie (Marsiglie L.F. LEtat Militaire de lEmpire Ottoman. Hague, 1732. P. 134-135)

Some provinces (so-called Saliene) didn’t have timariot system. Caffa, Galopoli, Cyprus, & Trabisond instead of mounted troops provided galleys & crews. Mamluks from Kairo (Egypt) had the right not to serve outside the province.
