ame road. Then a road leads in a straight line through Bactriana, and over the pass of the mountain to Ortospana,Candahar. to the meeting of the three roads from Bactra, which is among the Paropamisadæ. The other branch turns off a little from Aria towards the south to Prophthasia in Drangiana; then the remainder leads as far as the confines of India and of the Indus; so that the road through the Drangæ and the Arachoti is longer, the whole amounting to 15,300 stadia. But if we deduct 1300 stadia, we shall have the remainder as the length of the country in a straight line, namely, 14,000 stadia; for the length of the coast is not much less, although some persons increase this sum by adding to the 10,000 stadia Carmania, which is reckoned at 6000 stadia. For they seem to reckon it either together with the gulfs, or together with the Carmanian coast within the Persian Gulf. The name also of Ariana is extended so as to include some part of Persia, Media, and the nort

y, for according to Josephus the sea was visible from the tower of Psephina at Jerusalem. who, when they descended to the sea, used this place as a naval arsenal. But the arsenals of robbers are the haunts of robbers. Carmel, and the forest, belonged to the Jews. The district was so populous that the neighbouring village Iamneia,Jebna. and the settlements around, could furnish forty thousand soldiers. Thence to Casium,Ras-el-Kasaroun. near Pelusium, are little more than 1000 stadia, and 1300 to Pelusium itself. In the interval is Gadaris,Esdod. which the Jews have appropriated to themselves, then Azotus and Ascalon.Asculan. From Iamneia to Azotus and Ascalon are about 200 stadia. The country of the Ascalonitee produces excellent onions; the town is small. Antiochus the philosopher, who lived a little before our time, was a native of this place. Philodemus the Epicurean was a native of Gadara, as also Meleagrus, Menippus the satirist, and Theodorus the rhetorician, my con

e Ethiopians, but live independently, being distributed into several sovereignties. The extent of Egypt along the sea, from the Pelusiac to the Canobic mouth, is 1300 stadia. Such is the account of Eratosthenes. We must, however, enter into a further detail of particulars. And first, we must speak of the parts about Egypt, prd principal portion of the description, I shall begin with it. In sailing towards the west, the sea-coast from Pelusium to the Canobic mouth of the Nile is about 1300 stadia in extent, and constitutes, as we have said, the base of the Delta. Thence to the island Pharos are 150 stadia more. Pharos is a small oblong island, and lApis a village, from which to Parætonium are 100 stadia; [from thence] to the temple of Ammon is a journey of five days. From Parætonium to Alexandreia are about 1300 stadia. Between these are, first, a promontory of white earth, called Leuce-Acte, then Phœnicus a harbour, and Pnigeus a village; after these the island Sidonia
