In Thasus, a little before and during the season of Arcturus, there
were frequent and great rains, with northerly winds. About the equinox,
and till the setting of the Pleiades, there were a few southerly rains:
the winter northerly and parched, cold, with great winds and snow.
Great storms about the equinox, the spring northerly, dryness, rains
few and cold. About the summer solstice, scanty rains, and great cold
until near the season of the Dog-star. After the Dog-days, until the
season of Arcturus, the summer hot, great droughts, not in intervals,
but continued and severe: no rain; the Etesian winds blew; about the
season of Arcturus southerly rains until the equinox.
