Of Tanatos, chap. 157.

TAnatos is a little Iland of Occean, & is departed from Britaine with a lit∣tle arme of the sea, and hath wheat fields and noble ground, and is called Tana∣tos, and hath that name of death of Ser∣pents. For the earth of that land carri∣ed into any countrye of the worlde slay∣eth Serpents foorthwith: as Isidore say∣th, lib. 14.

(*This is supposed to be the Ile of Tenet in Kent, which is for the bignesse, very fertill and good land.)
