The beginning of this tract is Dædala,1 a stronghold; and ends at the mountain Phœnix,2 as it is called, both of which belong to the Rhodian territory. In front, at the distance of 120 stadia from Rhodes, lies Eleussa.3 In sailing from Dædala towards the west in a straight line along Cilicia, Pamphylia, and Lycia, in the midway is a bay called Glaucus, with good harbours; then is the promontory Artemisium, and a temple; next, the grove sacred to Latona; above this, and at the distance of 60 stadia, is Calynda, a city; then Caunus,4 and a deep river near it, the Calbis,5 which may be entered by vessels; between these is Pisilis.

1 Near Gudschek, at the bottom of the Gulf of Glaucus, now Makri.

2 The Phoenix (Phinti?) rises above the Gulf of Saradeh.

3 Alessa, or, according to others, Barbanicolo.

4 Dalian.
