[7]

On descending to the country lying at the foot of these heights the climate is more northerly, but milder, for the land below the heights joins the plains of the Siraces. There are some tribes of Troglodytæ who inhabit caves on account of the cold. There is plenty1 of grain to be had in the country.

Next to the Troglodytee are Chamæcœt,2 and a tribe called Polyphagi (the voracious), and the villages of the Eisadici, who are able to cultivate the ground because they are not altogether exposed to the north.

1 Groskurd reads ἀπορία, want, instead of εὐπορία, plenty.

2 χαμαικαῖται. People who lie on the ground.
