That's not a bad map. Well-rendered. However, the farther east one goes, the more pastiche trash accumulates. Robert E. Howard never typed the words "Sumero Tso", for instance. Never.
Some distances are out of whack. Kuthchemes is way too far from the bend in the Styx. Kuthchemes was maybe 80m from said bend. Using relative distances, that looks more like 200+mi. The map out now from Modiphius Games is a lot more accurate.
It’s a very good looking map. Gives a suitably epic scale to the setting. I’ve seen maps where the area covered by the Black Kingdoms is smaller than the area covered by the Hyborian lands of the northwest.
The positioning of Sabatea is interesting. The Modiphius map has it somewhere in the Kharamun Desert southeast of Zamboula. As I don’t have my books handy, I hesitate to comment on which might be closer to the correct location.

However the east looks like Dave Ripple's map in Blue Esat ?
Dale's map never had a "Sumero Tso" or other idiotic pastichery in the East. If you want a fan-made map that incorporates Dale's elements--which elements are simply Dale using speculative maps of Pleistocene Asia--then Trent Thompson's map is far better than that one.
