¶Of the hill Caucasus. Chap. 5.

CAucasus is an hill in the East and stretcheth out of India to the hil that is called Taurus, and hath diuers names by diuers nations that dwell nigh those hills, as Isi. saith. In ye East it ariseth & is a great hill, and for white snowe ly∣eth thereon, it is called Caucasus: For whitenesse is called Candor in ye East∣erne language. And so the Cities that be nigh to this hill, call it Crocasim: for Acasim in their speach, is vnderstoode whitenesse or snow, as Isidore saith.

(*Caucasus, an hil, one of the highest in all Asia, scituate aboue Iberia and Al∣bania, on the North part, and is a part of the mountaine Taurus. One of the partes of this hill, deuiding India & Me∣dia, stretcheth towards the Red sea.
