 The island is mountainous and woody, but has fertile valleys. The mountains towards the west are called Leuca, or the White Mountains,1 not inferior in height to the Taygetum,2 and extending in length about 300 stadia. They form a ridge, which terminates at the narrow parts (the isthmus). In the middle of the island, in the widest part, is (Ida),3 the highest of the mountains there. Its compass is about 600 stadia. It is surrounded by the principal cities. There are other mountains equal in height to the White Mountains, some of which terminate on the south, others towards the east.
