The Taurus forms a partition approximately through the middle of this continent, extending from the west towards the east, leaving one portion of it on the north and the other on the south. Of these portions, the Greeks call the one the "Cis-Tauran" Asia and the other "Trans-Tauran." I have said this before,1 but let me repeat it by way of reminder.

1 i.e., "Asia this side Taurus and Asia outside Taurus." (Cp. 2. 5. 31.)
