Of Melos, chap. 102.

MElos is an Ilande of the Ciclades, 〈…〉 to most rounde of all Ilandes, and is therefore called Melos, that is to saye, 〈…〉, as Isidore saith, libro, 15. And this lande is full of much good, as Plinius sayth. And what lacketh in this lande in quantitye of space, is rewar∣ded and recouered in the goodnesse of the ground.

(*One of the Iles of Sicilla, where inhabited huge Gyaunts, hauing but one eue in their forehead.)
