Liber XIV

Isidore of Seville or their common origin of the Etymologies OF THE BISHOP OF BOOK OF 14


I, From the earth. [1] The land is in the middle of the country of the world placed, to all the quarters of the sky in the manner of, consisting of the center of equal intervals, which in the singular number signifies the whole world, the individual parts by the plural. The reason he gives the names of the different, for the land of the said from the higher part, by which is worn by the; the ground from the lower the wet or the earth, as under the sea; the earth, however, because you take away the fruits thereof; these things, and the said aid, because he carries the corn of aid; the same and the fields, from the plowing and the cultivation of merits. [2] Strictly speaking, however the land to let the dry land is called the distinction of water, as the Scripture says (Genes.1, 10): 'That which God of the Earth has called the dry land.' For the natural dryness of the property is to the earth; for, just as the wet, assigned by lot to this affinity of the waters. Others say the movement of which reached is in the hollow of his, which motion moves it. Sallust (Hist.2, fr. 28): 'The winds through the hollow of the earth were broken up when summoned for some tumulique the mountains to sit down.' [3] Others genetalem they say the water on earth to be moved, and that these, at the same time shaking up, like a jar that, Lucretius, as he says (6,555). Others SPOGGOEIDE the earth will have it, of which for the most part in hiding all of ruin laid upon it tremble. The land also an opening of the lower or the motion of water is made, or by frequent thunder, or of a sally of the winds of the earth were hollow.

2. Out of the world. [1] Ring of the circle a round one, because it is just like a wheel, and so even in a short rotella is called the little wheel. For the ocean everywhere, around in the circle of his fee He holds the ends. Now it is divided into three sections: one of which, a part of Asia, the other Europe, the third Africa, appropriated. [2] these three parts of the world is not equally divided among the old. For Asia, from the south through the east as far to the north; Europe from the north even to the west, and thence as far as Africa from the west to the south. [3] And so evidently hold the two half of the world, Europe, and Africa, and the other half Asia alone, but for that reason, these two parts are made, because between the two from the ocean and the great sea, shall come into the fact that the cuts between. And therefore, if in the two parts of the East and West divide the world, Asia will be in one side, on the other and Europe and Africa.

3. Of Asia. [1] of a certain province of Asia in the name of a woman is appelata, which, in ancient times held the empire of the east. This, placed in the third part of the world arranged according to rising of the sun from the east on the south by the ocean, the sea to the west comes to an end to our, on the north side the Maeotian the den, and the Tanais, the river is terminated. So it has an, many and the countries of the provinces, of which the names of the briefly will unfold and the situation of having taken the beginning, from paradise. [2] is the place of paradise in the east, its name from Greek into Latin for garden: but of Eden in Hebrew is said, that in the delight of our language is interpreted. And both the union makes the garden of delights, for it is the tree, and all kinds of fruit trees set with trees, and also had, and the tree of life: they do not there cold nor the heat, but perpetual mild air. [3] From the middle of which a fountain of its outburst, the whole grove watered by, dividiturque in their origin in the four rivers. Of the place, after being cut off from access to the sin of man is; for it is trapped by the sword taking on all sides of flame, that is, a fiery girded with a wall, so that its almost may join together with the sky a blaze. [4] of cherubim, too, that is, the protection of angels, keep off the evil spirits upon the sword, the fragrant, it was ordered, that men should be the flame, And the angels avert the evil angels, to prevent them of trespass to the flesh or spirit of the entrance of Paradise may be clear. [5] India being summoned by the river Indus, which is enclosed on the western side. This, in the south as far as the stretches of the sea to the rising of the sun, and from the north even to the mountain of the Caucasus arrives at a, having a great nations, and the towns of, and the Isle Taprobanen also filled with precious stones, and the elephants, and Chrysa and the fruitful Argyren with gold and silver, the leaves of the trees Tilen also never talks about. [6] so it has a the rivers, the Ganges and Indus and the Bug, and lighting the Indians. Of India, the land of the spirit of somewhat large extent in the most wholesome reaps the fruits of the year two: Etesian winds of the winter time he suffers. But tench too, produces men of color, the elephants were huge monoceron the beast, a bird, parrot, too, ebony wood, and that, with pepper, cinnamon and pen of spices. [7] He sends and ivory, of great value, even the stones of: the beryl, the PRECIOUS STONE, and as hard as flint, a carbuncle, lychnites, and unions of pearls, which our great ladies so ardently desire. There also are the mountains of gold which men to go to because of the dragons and griffins and vast, is inpossible monsters. [8] of India, the Parthian flying from as far as the borders of Mesopotamia, to the generally derives its name. Because of the Parthians, for the invincible power, and the rest of the Assyrians and the nearest in situation, to his name we have gone away. For there are in it Aracusia, with Parthia, and Assyrian, Media, with the Persians, which conjoined with itself, one another, the countries of origin from the river Indus to receive it, it is enclosed within the Tigris, places, and situated on the mountains and the severer, and have a Hydaspes the rivers, and Arbee. For there are to each other separated by their own country, the names of the authors of so from their own LIFE. [9] from the town of his Aracusia to be named. From the land of Scythia to the Parthians Parthia and seized the coming, and that It therefore they called that by its very name. Of this to the south, the Red is the sea, Hyrcanus and threw the open sea on the north side, from the middle of the western side of the sun. The realm of in it ten, and there are eight, the stretches of the shore from the Caspian to earth, and the Scythians. [10] from the Assyrian, Assyria, being called, the son of Shem, who after the flood the country of CAM was the first area. This from the rising of India, he occupied the middle of the south by the touches, the Tigris to the west, the north by the mountain of the Caucasus, the Caspian Gates to where they are. This region was found to be the first to the use of purple, is the first and the hair "of bodies, they came and scents of ointments, wherein the Romans and Greeks, flow of language lust. [11] Media, with the Persians by the kings in their name the Medes and Persians, who conveyed them to the provinces, they commenced the attack by fight. Media from these crosswise on the west in league with the kingdoms of Parthia, Armenia, around them, and on the north side, from the rising of the Caspian sees, on the south Persia. Of this tree, the land of the Medici she brings forth, not at all than any other gives birth to the region. But there are two of the Medes,,, one small. [12] from the rising of Persians as far as stretching out to the Indians, on the west the Red Sea has, however, from the north, occupied the middle of he touches on the Carmania from the south, which is connected with Persia, to whom is the noblest of the town of Susa. In Persia, the first arose, is the art of magic, to which the Nimrod a mighty went his way after the confusion of tongues, and there the Persians to worship the fire has taught us. For all the sun in those parts, they who worship in their own language is said to El. [13] Mesopotamia, he possesses the etymology of the Greek, which surrounded the rivers of the two, for from the east, the Tigris has, the Euphrates to the west. It begins at the north, between the mountain of the Taurus and the Caucasus; of which it follows to the south, Babylonia, by the Chaldean and then, last of Arabia, EUDUIMON. [14] of the country of Babylon, Babylon, the head of a city, a, and from which to be named, as well as a noble Assyrians and the Chaldean and Mesopotamia to his name we shall have passed away at any time. [15] Arabia, it was called, that it is sacred, for this is to signify he explains, because it is the region of turifera, and perfumes when creating: that she EUDAIMON the Greeks, called by the name of our blessed. Of which the forests and for cinnamon and myrrh are due to: a phoenix is a bird it is born there, sardonyx a jewel, and a rainbow, and molochites paederota there is found therein. She is also of Saba, and was designated by the son of Cush, who was termed of Sheba. But this a narrow expanse of lands to the east, he turned to the Persian Gulf of extended, of which the northern extremities of the Chaldean closes, the setting of the sine of Arabian languages. [16] Syria The Syrian was some report of the same country whose name was proclaimed it from its. This is what the east of the river Euphrates, on the west of our sea, and Egypt, is ended, "the tangent of the north by Armenia, and Cappadocia, in the bosom of the south by the Arabian languages. The situation of his full length on the length of an immense, in a wide narrower. [17] So it has an in itself the provinces of Commagene, that the Phoenician, and Palestine, part of which Judea was without the Saracens and the Nabutheans. Commagene the province of Syria, the first derived from nouns Commagae of the city to be named, which was formerly the metropolis of there, was held to. Is on the north side of this Armenia, the from the rising of Mesopotamia, to the south, Syria, on the west, and the great sea. [18] Phoenix Cadmus' brother, as from Thebes of the Egyptians into Syria, Sidon, he set out with the king, and that province in accordance with his own name he called the Phoenician. "The same is Tyre, where there is, to whom Isaiah (23) is speaking. So it has an Arabia from the east on the south by the Red Sea. [19] the province of Palestine, Philistus metropolis of the city that we have had it is now called Ashkelon, out of which the state of any up to the king about the Palestine, is to be named. Of this from the east, the Red Sea occurs to me, in the south, Judah, who received him, the north side of the borders of the Tyrians is enclosed, on the west limit of the Egyptian, is terminated. [20] the name of the land of Judaea, Palaestinaeex of Judah, it was called, and from her the kings of the tribe he had before. This in former times of Canaan, said of the son of Ham, the Canaanites, either from the ten nations, who being driven out the Jews possessed the same land. The beginning of the length of his from the village to the village as far as Arfa Iuliadem is stretched, and in which of the Jews, as well as the habitation of the common is the Tyrians. And the breadth of his from the mount of Lebanon to the Lake of Tiberias is extended. [21] In the middle of the city of Judea, went up to Jerusalem, is as a navel of the country of the whole. The land of varied wealth rich man, the corn of the fertile, as the waters and illustrious, and the rich of balm. And so of the elements according to the grace of the Jews thought that the promise to our sires it a land flowing with honey and milk are, since here the prerogative of God gave them his promise of the resurrection. [22] Samaria, the region of Palestine from the town in a certain received the name of Samaria, who was called, the city of the royal once in Israel, now for its August is called the name of Sebaste. This is the region around the middle of Judea and Galilee lies, beginning from the village of Elis and to whom is the name of, deficient in the land of Agrabath. The situation of his nature as our nature and not in any He differs from the Judea. [23] Galilee region of Palestine, so called because it produces an effect whiter than men and Palestine. But this is twofold, the higher and lower, to himself, however, linked, Syria, and Phoenician attached to it. The land of their rich and fertile enough for the fruitful and on the fruit. [24] Whose land for the region in the confines of Arabia, and Palestine is situated, so called from the cities of impious from the five which are consumed with a heavenly fire. From Jerusalem, the land of more than the most productive in times past, now that is desert and burned down, for it for its wickedness of the inhabitants came down from heaven the fire, that that country round about in the ashes of the eternal, were dissolved. [25] of which some shadow, is the beauty of the trees in dust and it still seems confused by the very. Are produced there under the spring from the fruits of the species alone of maturity, so that engender the desire of eating and, if I will get the cracks and are resolved into the ashes, exhale the smoke as if it had burned?. [26] the Nabutheans Nabeth part of that region to be named the son of Ishmael. To lie, among the Jews and Arabia, and rising up, from the Euphrates into the Red Sea is stretched, and is a part of Arabia. [27] the land of Egypt, which before was said to Aeria, from Egypt the Greeks there, the reign of his brother later got its name. This is what the east of Syria and of the Red Sea, connected to this, the interior of Libya from the west, has being, of the great sea, the north, on the south however, far within, it leaves him even to the pertendens the Ethiopians; region of heaven unfamiliar with them and showers of rain to the earth in the secret. [28] around the Nile alone, it is watered by, and when a flood is full of his own and so also the rich in a lot of the corn of wheat, part of the lands, rears; that matter also of the rest so much so that a very great inpleat also necessary to trade my wares all the world. The end of Canopea of Egypt, Canopus 'from the pilot of Menelaus, after he had buried in it, the island which is Libya' s the beginning and the mouth of the Nile he doeth it. [29] of the east the town of Seres, of whom is and the kind of silk, and a territory to be named [is]. This is what the Scythian Ocean, and the Caspian Sea as the ocean, a bend of the east, the fertile leaves, the nobility, of which the fleeces of decerpuntur, pertaining to the other of the nations of garments to the use of Chinese goods. [30] the Bactrian Bactrian of the country the proper name of the river has given. Its parts are behind the Propanisi surrounded by the ridges, that are against the Indians are the fountains of the rivers of an end of the rest of the river includes the Ochus. He sends Bactrian camels, the most valiant never adterentes feet. [31] as the land of Scythia from the land of the Goths, and Magog, is carried the surname of the son of Japheth. Whose the land of long ago there was a mighty, for from the east, India, on the north side the Sea of Asov through the marshes between the Danube and the Ocean, even to the ends of the of Germany, there stretched a. But after he made a less than; to the right of the east part, by which silk is stretched the ocean, as far as the Caspian Sea, which is at the west; and then to the south, as far as the yoke of the Caucasus to the point where, to whom Hyrcanus in from the west, is subject to having many nations, as well, for the sake of barren soil which causes of the lands far and wide, wandering about, . [32] some of which inhabit the fields, that certain things more monstrous and cruel on human flesh and the blood of their live. Many of the earth are the land of Scythia wealthy, any to dwell therein Yet many, for a number of topics when, in the gold and precious stones abound, the grype their awful approach of men is rare. Now they are best emeralds, this is my fatherland: cyaneus also a stone, and a crystal that is the most pure of Scythia. So it has a great rivers of Moses, and the Phasiden Araxes. [33] Hyrcanus in the said from the woods, the Hyrcanian, which is subject to the land of Scythia, having the Caspian Sea from the east, to the south, Armenia, Albania on the north side, on the west Iberia. Now there is the rough in the woods, a very great immense causes of the wild beasts, tigers, panthers pantherisque. Virgil, of what (Aen. 4,367):

Hyrcanean admorunt breasts tigers.

[34] Albania to be named from the color of the people, because he had white hair, grow up. This is what the east, rising up, under the Caspian Sea, through the north coast of the Ocean as far as the Sea of Asov to the marshes through the desert of what was desolate, and an extension. The dogs of the earth in this of tremendous stature and so fierce press with just as bulls have, the lions have to kill them. [35] Armenia, an Armenian of Jason to be named from the Thessalian the elections, the Jason, they lose their king gathered the multitude of his things which he suffered used to parade close, Armenia, and took it, and by its very name he called the.

There are two kinds of Armenia, however, the higher and lower, for example, two of Hungary. [36] Iberia, the region of Asia and of the, near the bridge of Armenia joined. In the useful colors by this plant, are born. Cappadocia, the city of their own mentioned his name. [37] This, placed in the head of Syria, Armenia, located on the east, he touches on Asia from the west, a minor, from the north, the sea and Cimmericum Themiscyrios the plains, whom he had, the Amazons; to the south, but the Taurus mountains, to which is subject to Cilicia and Isauria, even to the haircloth his bosom, he who looks on at opposite their island to Cyprus. The land of his nurse, before the other horses. Halys, the river flows through it, who of old, the kingdoms of distinction, of Lydia by the Persians. [38] Asia Minor from the east Cappadocia, surrounded on all sides from the other parts around them, and the sea, for the north by the Black Sea has, on the west of Marmara, on the south by the Egyptian and the sea. It contains the provinces of Bithynia, Phrygia, Galatia, Lydia, Caria, Pamphylia, Isaurian, Lycia, and Cilicia. [39] The first of Bithynia, in Asia Minor, in the beginning of the Black Sea to a part of the opposite of the rising sun of Thrace, lies there, many years ago, was called after him. For first it was BITHYNIA said, and then Mygdonia and then by the king of Bithynia Bithynia, to be named. She is also greater than the Phrygian. Nicomedia, and the city is in it, where Hannibal, fleeing a draft of the soul of poison gave up the ghost. [40] Galatia, how the said by the ancients, the Gauls, the people by whom, rose up, gaining a. For the French in the help of the called before the king of Bithynia, the kingdom with him, they divided the victory has been won, and so to the Greeks and then been joined in Galatians with the first, now of the Gauls out of an old name of the Galatians, are said to; region of Galatia, and of them, appropriated. [41] from Phrygia Phrygia, the said Europus a daughter. These and the Dardan Dardanus of Jupiter from the son of the said. Out of which Homer says that he (cf. Il. 20,215):

The king was at Troas, on the part of the north from the superiecta Galatia; from the southern Lycaonia, it is nigh; from the east of Lydia adheres to; the Hellespont from the west, the sea is terminated. Of this king is Troy, out of which it his own name Trojan son of, the king of the Trojans, the father of Ganymede. There are two of Phrygia, however: the major and minor. The major premise in Phrygia, at Smyrna has, less than the truth, he was. [42] s Caria Lycaonia, the river can not do evil we distinguish between the Phrygians. [43] Lydia, the ancient seat of his throne, but the wave has lifted a Pactolus in its unto the riches of the torrents of gold. Maeonian these points before it was said, and this, when short is the kings of the two brothers, taken by a Lydian and unable to endure the force of the Tuscan, hence, even of the Tuscan by lot with the great number of places set out for Gaul, took possession of, and Tyrrheniam mentioned his name. Lydia, from the Lydians the king 's brother, who had remained in the province, is the surname of. But from the west, are united to the lesser of Phrygia, from the rising of Smyrna, the city has, which was Helles surrounded by the river; the plains of which can not do evil, and Pactolus in its surrounds, he hit the sand of gold, secured a very rich. Pamphylia. [44] from the position of Isauria, is reported to the surname of the local, which open on all sides with blasts of air, may be clear. Metropolis has the city Seleucia. [45] in a certain of Cilicia Cilicia, has got its name, which the rising of the Phoenix, they say, antiquioremque assert to have been Jupiter. And a very great lies the plains, a recipient of Lycia to the west, on the south Issicum the sea, at their back of the mountain ridges of Taurus. This cuts between the river Cydnus. Matrons for the city has to Tarsus. In it, the town and the Corycian of which, in saffron very much and good, and he came, breathing and color of the fraglantiori more than my ear. [46] in Lycia and called because it is from the east is the circumstances of Cilicia. For they have a from the rising of Cilicia, on the west, and at noon the sea, the north by the precious to me. There is a mountain of the Chimaera, who breathes out the fire, extremes of heat at night, just as in Sicily, Etna and Vesuvius in Campania.

4. OF THE EVROPA. [1] After the style of the Europe to Asia to be translated. For Europe of Agenor was the daughter of the king 's of Libya, which was carried off from Africa, of Jupiter to Crete on it, and part of the third world from the name of his title of god. This is the the son of Libya 's cause does this, out of which and Libya, Africa, that is to say, it is carried the surname of; whence it appears that the interior of Libya first to have received the word, and then Europe. [2] Europe on the third part of the world was divided from the river Tanais, begins to, coming down to the going down throughout the north as far as the Ocean into the coasts of Spain; part of which the east, and southward, from the Black Sea rose up, and the whole of the great sea, joined to another, both in the isles comes to an end to its fate.

Of this is the first part of Alan, the Sea of Asov that link to reach the marshes; Dacia, after this, where both the land of the Goths, and then Germany, where the Swedes j and very much part of the area. [4] The Germans after the Scythia from the lower Danube and dwelt between the Rhine concluded to Ocean, surrounded by the river on the north side and the setting of the Ocean, but from the rising of the Danube, on the south of the river Rhine put an end to. The land of the man or the rich man with numerous and immense causes of the people, and so also of the people for the sake of the fertility of the generation of Germany is made.

In this from the east of Marmara and the opposite is the City of Constantinople, however, turning on the north side within sight of when sick to the south, however, adheres to the sea, on the west Macedonia, is subject to him. Of whose Region, in times past Massagetae, for the people of the Bessi, Sarmatians, the Scythians and the other many nations among the inhabited; for it is ample, and therefore were very great successively to that nation. Ebrum the river of Thrace, pours forth, also the nation of numbers of the barbarians affected by it. [7] the king of Greece by a Greek, being called, and he who made all the kingdom of that side and it inhabits. But there are the seven of the province of Greece: the first of which from the west, Dalmatia and, from there a Co from thence, Hellas, Thessaly, from there, from thence, Macedonia, Achaia, from there, and two in the sea, Crete and the Cyclades.

She is also true of Greece, Athens, where he was city, the mother of the philosophers of letters and of the liberal nurse, with whom Greece had nothing more famous and noble. In it there is the opinion of the plain of Marathon, and once the battle cruentissimus. [11] Greece, however, there are two of the province: a Boeotian, and the Peloponnesian. Boeotia is so called That is why the. While Cadmus of Agenor the son of the sister of Europe, was carried off by Jupiter, on instructions from her father to seek nor find, the father, fearing the wrath of the courage he chose exile. For perhaps the sight of an ox, embraced a followed the steps of the throne, Where were all those recubaverat, and so the name of the place, from the ox named Boeotia, where the city of Thebes and has built, on which I once the civil war he detonuerunt, and where we were born, Apollo and Hercules are greater he of Thebes.

The stone which the paeaniten they call these things is generative. Mount Olympus is in it, an excellent, who is lifted to the top of so great in the tops of the clouds of it, neither the wind nor perceived by them. [14] by the Achaeans Achaia, the king and the city and the province it was called. This almost there is an island, for without on the north side, by which Macedonia is connected, and is on every side the bounds of the sea. On the east, For he hath no myrtle the sea, the Cretan, from the east on the south by the Ionian, from the south and the setting of the islands of Cassiope in a lonely, on the north side of Macedonia, or the land of Attica is appended here.

V. OF THE of Libya. [1] is so called because Libya and from thence WEST-SOUTHWEST WIND A flat, that is, the Southwest. Others Epaphum they say, the daughter of Jupiter, who, Memphis, in Egypt, has created, begotten of his wife, the daughter of Cassiope the interior of Libya, which was afterwards in Africa, the kingdom of possession of them. After whose name the land of Libya and to the state. [2] Africa is of greater name him what they think that, as it were exposed to the sun, that it is the heavens opened, or without the sun, and the horror of cold weather. Others say that appeal is made from Africa, one of the posterity of Abraham of Cetura, who have been called an African, which is mentioned above (9,2,115) made mention. [3] It begins at from the ends of the south of Egypt, going along by the Ethiopia all the way through the mountain of Atlas. But, on the north part of the Mediterranean joined to the sea is closed, and in the Straits of Gibraltar to an end, the provinces of the interior of Libya, having a Cyrenian, Whose land, Tripolis, Byzacium, Carthage, Numidia, Mauritania, Sitifensem, Mauritania, sailing, and with the heat of the sun Cush,. [4] of Cyrene, Libya and in the portion of the first of Africa, is considered by the city of Cyrene, metropolis, which is in the borders of his, to be named. This is the land of Egypt from the east, on the west and the Greater Syrtes and the Cavemen, the north by the Libyan sea, on the south by Ethiopia, and various countries of the barbarians and the lonely inaccessible, which, even serpents, basilisks, were appointed. [5] in the Greek tongue Whose land from the five cities to be named: that is, Berenice, Ceutria, Apollonia, Ptolemais, and Cyrene, of whom those Ptolemais, and Bernice, by the kings, named as they are. Now there is the circumstances of Cyrene in Libya 'Whose land, and [in the] borders of his appointed for you.

This has to the east and the Greater Syrtes and the Cavemen, the Adriatic Sea on the north side, on the west Byzacium, on the south and Gaetulians Garamantes far as the ocean pertendentes the Ethiopic. [7] Byzacena the region of the two has been allotted the highest rank, name to the town, comes from one of which, Adrumetum is called Adar. Tripoli of these things is, an open miles or more thousand two hundred and complete, conceived of oil, and clods of earth and so there, VERY FAT to throw the seeds of the growth of grain grow again almost twelve per cent.

She is also among the true Africa, Numidia and Byzacium and situated on the north by the sea, joined to the Sicilian, and to the south, even to the Gaetulian the stretches of the country; that which is nearest of which are laden with fruit, but later, however, full of wild animals, and serpents, and wild asses, and wandered the desert magnisin. But of Gaetulia of Africa is part of the interior of. [9] by the inhabitants of Numidia, wandering everywhere, so being called, and for no certain that they might have the seat,. For in their language of uncertain seat and roving 'Numidia,' they are said. It begins at Amsiga from the river, inZeugitanum defines the limit, having the Syrtes, from the rising of the minor from the north by the sea itself, which he intends to Sardinia, and from the west, Mauritania, Sitifensem, on the south of the Ethiopians nations: the fields of the region VERY FAT. When, however, is the wild, wild beasts take, where the ridges steep, horses and wild asses in the weather that; most notable marble also is predicated, it is said that the Numidicus. So it has an the principal cities of: Hippo, the king and the Rusicadam. [10] Mauritania being called from the color of the people; MAURON black for the Greeks call it. For just as the whiteness of Gaul the more the people, so the name of the blackness from the Mauritania has been allotted. And at first his Sitifensis is the province of Mauritania, which had a town of Sitifi; from whom it took the name of the region is said to have ended it. [11] of Caesarea, Mauritania, however: the colonies of the city of Caesarea was, and the name of the province out of it it was given. Vtraeque, therefore, conjoined with itself, the province of Numidia, where they have from the east, the great sea, on the north side, on the west the river Malva, from the south of the mountain Astrixin, who puts the difference between the earth, and one who bears children of sand, lying far as the ocean.

Now there is between the Cyrenian and Ethiopia, where there is the fountain which is cold and hot at the heat of the day, the cold of the night. [14] Ethiopia, from the color of the said people, which the neighborhood of the sun burns. In short, the force of the planet 'is produced: the color of men, for it is there, the tide heights, for any part of it is, the hinge is in the south. In regard to the West is a land of hills, however, in the midst of Sandy soil, on the east side of the desert, however: whose location is to the west of the mountain of Atlas to the east, even to the ends of the of Egypt, is stretched, and to the south, the Ocean, the River Nile on the north side is enclosed; the nations were very great, having it for a different countenance, and the horrible and monstrous species .

The next is The provinces of Spain Mauritania, Numidia, and then, of the king of Carthage, and after that we receive the Gaetulia, after that of Ethiopia, the burning sun, burnt up the places. [18] It should be known that "some of the province, indeed, the first of the name of the author; these are called; afterwards from the province of the nation is the name of it came to pass. For it is from an Italian, Italy, and on the other hand be an Italian from Italy, and so we use the very names of the race, as was the name of the author gives the same injunction, from which is derived the name of the country. From this it happens to be named out of one and the name of the country, and the city and the nation. [19] And which of the cause of the province of the word they obtained them. For the Principality of the Gentiles, who belonged to the kings were, some, him in his right might reduce the conquering of the Roman, from a distance part of the province have called. To the Father, so called because in general is an of all, who were born in it. [20] And the earth signified, as we said before, (13,3,1), the element of the earth of the its different parts, that Africa, and Italy. And for the same places, for various places, and extent of country is in the world many countries, contain in themselves the provinces, as in a body is a part of the place of one, the many things in itself contains the members is, just as, and the house in a number of chambers, holding itself: so they are called, and the places of the earth are in distant lands, of which the parts are of the province, just as in Asia, Phrygia, in Gaul, fear, of Southern Spain in Spain. [21] For Asia is the place, the province of Asia, Phrygia, the region of Phrygia, Troy, Ilium, the city of Troy. Also part of the country are the provinces of which the congregation calls the common people, as it is in Phrygia, Troy, just as in the French Cantabria, Asturia. By the rectors of The region is called, the parts of which are territories. [22] The territory of the tauritorium but was called as it were pounded, herd, and of the plow. For the ancients led to the furrow and of the territory and possessions to the limits pointed out.

6. When: OF THE. [1] The island is so called because they are in the open sea, that is, in the sea. Hence it is also very famous and the greatest moment, And very many of the old I discovered by clever study, are to be noted. [2] SPREAD HERE AND THERE Britain island in the ocean the sea was divided over the whole world, derived from nouns cognominita of His own nation. The latter, against to have view of part of Gaul, of Spain, is situated; Its circuit of four-eight times, seventy-five thousand each from the many and great rivers in it, the springs of hot metal to a generous and abundance of the various: the stone there many jet and pearl of price. [3] the strait of Thanet the French island of the ocean, from Britain the estuary of the separated with a thin, fertile soil, the plains, and anointed with fresh oil. Is named from Thanet from death of serpents, whom he does not know while she was, thence by land away and carried off in any of the nations were borne in procession is; snakes at once kills. [4] This page was last island of the ocean of Thule, between the north and to the west side of the above Britain, from the sun, having the name of, for in it the summer solstice, the sun is doing, and her the days of no one is any more. And so also the wearisome, and the concrete is its the sea. [5] within the island of the ocean the Orkneys Britain set for the number of thirty-three, of which twenty are desolate, were thirteen to court. [6] Scotland, the same, and the island of Britain, Ireland, the next in the space of the world is too narrow, but the situation, more fruitful. This from the south to the north wind is stretched. The parts of which the former and Iberia intend to Cantabrians the Ocean, from which the said and Ireland: Scotland, however, that from the Nations of the Scots is worshiped, it was called. There there is no snake, few birds, the bee zero, so much so that the dust from thence who has been wafted pebbles or if a man in another place with spray between the hives, swarms of the combs, deserted by them. [7] at the end of the island of Cadiz is a province situated in Baetica,, which separates Europe from Africa, in which the columns of Hercules are to be seen, and from whence the Tyrrhenian Sea inmittitur jaws of the ocean tide. Now there is from the land by a hundred and twenty paces divided, than the Tyrian set out from the Red, occupying the sea [in the] of Gadi, in his own language, that is the seventh, called by the name, because he is surrounded by the sea.

Of his own for the needs of Nature and of precious ready to bring forth the fruits of the forests; from chance, the ridges of the vines of the hills are clothed; the place of the harvest of herbs to the manner of herbs and is commonly called. And so the error of the Gentiles, and cares of this world only for the sake of the fecundity of the poets that the same are a paradise of thought. Of which are located in the ocean, but against the left of Mauretania leaves the setting near together, and to each other separated by the sea between them.

It has been said of Hercules, but for the sake of Sigeum to Mytilene, because it is prohibited from the Laumedonte lodged with the king of the Trojans, pretended was going off, and then advanced against the Troy came with silence, which is called the Sigeian. [3] past Malea to this promontory of Greece, that which goeth into the sea, and through thousands and fifty extends where the waves are so cruel is that the pursuit of sailing by it, may be seen.

8. THE LAND OF THE MONTIBVS CETERISQVE VOCABVLIS. [1] Montessunt tumors of the lands of the most high, the said that they are projecting out. And some of the causes of their own, are called to, out of which should not be marked, are they that the opinion of greatest fame and name.

When, however, to the east, in a higher rises in the sublimity of, the whiteness of the snow for the Caucasus, called in Greek. For the tongue of the east 'the Caucasus, "signifies the white, that is, the very thick snow lay candicantem. And so also the him to the Scythians, to the same mountain, Be thou, who joined with it, and therefore they called Croacasim. 'Casio' them for in the eyes or the snow of the whiteness it is said. [3] The Taurus mountains are by most of the same name, and in the Caucasus. [4] Mount Lebanon, the Phoenicians in the most high, it is mentioned by the prophets; from the gifts of incense, the said, because there is deduced. To whom the latter part, which is upon him, on the east side of the looking back on the Antilibanus is called, ie, against Lebanon.

Here in the ridges of the two split: Cyrrham and selected a rough, and so also, is so called to him, since in each of the ridges were worshiped by the Apollo and freely. These slopes were from the two brothers and Cithaeron is called Helicon. For Helicon Helicon was named after his brother Cythaeronis. [12] Again, the mountains were the Ceraunian of Epirus, from the frequent lightning 's flash of the said. KERAUNOS for in Greek it is called a thunderbolt. [13] as it were called the Apennine mountain of the Alps Pennine, because Hannibal was the same when he came to the Alps to Italy had opened ". And so also Virgil (Aen. 10,13):

Casteth into a open, but the Alps;

[15] the Pyrenees and he himself is the thunder, with frequent fires, is so called; for in Greek it is called a pure of fire. This is he which between France and Spain and as if on purpose the fortification of the intervening. [16] of a single from the Solurius it is said, which is to all the mountains of Spain may be seen alone, higher than any of [either that which, when the sun before the the radius of his which he himself may be discerned].

[18], properly speaking, the Alps are the mountains of France. Touching such things as Virgil (Georg. 3,474):

The Alps of the air;
