 In sailing from the city, and leaving the island on the right hand, the first place we meet with is Lindus,1 a city situated on a mountain extending far towards the south, and particularly towards Alexandreia (in Egypt).2 There is here a celebrated temple of the Lindian Diana, built by the Danaides. Formerly, the Lindians, like the inhabitants of Cameirus,3 and Ialyssus, formed an independent state, but afterwards they all settled at Rhodes. Cleobulus, one of the seven wise men, was a native of Lindus.
