ARchadia is a Prouince set betwéene the Sea Ionium, and the Sea Egeum, as Isidore saith. Archas, Iupiters sonne put out the men yt dwelled in this land, and called the land Archadia by his own name. And afterward the land was cal∣led Sicionia, of a king which is called Sicionius, as Isidore saith. li. 15.

(*Archadia a Country in Gréece set in the middle of Peloponesus, or Morea, so called of Archas the son of Iupiter, who reigned there. It was also called Pelasgia, Parrhasia and Liconia, there was the Bagpipe fist inuented. Also the senne Leina, where Hercules slewe the Serpent Hydra, is there: with the riuer Grymanthus, a mountaine of the same name, there is also sound the stone Abe∣ston, which being once hotte may ne∣uer be quenched, and is of the coulour of yron.)
