¶Of the hill Ararath. cap. 3.
ARarath is the highest hill of Arme∣nia, therein Noes ship rested after the floude, as Isidore saieth, and yet to this day the timber of that shippe is séene in that mountaine. And that hill hath ma∣ny names. Iosephus speaketh of that hil, and sayeth in this manner. The place where Noes ship is, the Armenians call it Egressorium, & yet men of that coun∣trie shew timber that was left of ye ship. And (as Iosephus saieth there) Berosus Caldeus maketh minde of that shippe in this manner. It is sayd, that the ship that came into Armenia, is yet some part about the hill Cardiens, and thereof fal∣leth glew, that men vse most to cleanse. Also Iosephus Egypcius, and Man•slus Damescenus, in 96. hist. libro. write in this manner. In Armenia is a great hil that is named Baris, and it is sayd, that in time of the great floud, many fled and were saued therein, and that one came in a ship to the top of the hill, and some of the timber was there kept long time. Also the Mountaines of Armenia, are called Ceraunei, for highnesse and ofte beating of riuers: for a riuer is named Cerannus in Greeke as Isidore sayeth. These hills begin betwéene Armenia, & Hiberia as Isidore saith, at the ports of Caspis, and stretcheth to the well, where the Riuer Tigris beginneth, as Isidore sayth.
