A steep rock point on the S side of Bermel Peninsula (q.v.), Bowman Coast, marking the extremity of a spur running SE from the easternmost of the Bowditch Crests. The point was first roughly mapped by W.L.G. Joerg from air photos taken by Lincoln Ellsworth on Nov. 23, 1935; surveyed by FIDS, Dec. 1958. In association with the names of pioneers of navigation grouped in this area, it was named by UK-APC after Petrus Vesconte of Genoa, the earliest known chartmaker whose charts survive (the first dated 1311).
