Of Zeugia. chap. 177.

ZEogia is called Zeugis also, and is a prouince where as the thore Car∣thage is, ••ituate in the lesse Africa, be∣twéene Bisantium and Numidis, as Isi∣dore sayth, lib. 14. This prouince stret∣cheth from the north sea into Siculum, as he sayth. And stretcheth out of the South, to the country of Getules. The hither part thereof beareth well corne, and the further is full of Serpents & of beasts that be wilde. There be wild As∣ses, and other wilde beastes. There bée found wonders, and beasts wonderfully shapen, as he saith.
