Spyro N. Spiridon (also spelled Spyridon) (1894 - 19xx) was a Jerusalem-born engineer and cartographer. Spiridon studied electrical and civil engineering in Switzerland in his twenties and was exposed to the types of pictorial tourist maps that were popular there. After returning to Jerusalem, Spiridon had difficulty making ends meet with jobs in his chosen field, so he changed tactics and created a pictorial tourist map of Jerusalem. Spiridon's first map, published in 1930, was one of the first tourist maps of Jerusalem to employ the vignette-style views of buildings to mark popular tourist sites. He then published a panorama of Jerusalem, with editions of this map appearing in 1945, 1948, and 1953 at the very least.
