Of the Prouince Fenicia. Chap. 59.
FEnix is a prouince, & hath that name at Fenice the brother of Cathini. For Fenix was put out of Glebis The bis in Aegipt, & driuen into Sir••, & reigned in Sidon, and called the land after his own name Fenicia. It is the land wherin Ti∣rus is, against the which spake Esay, as Isid. saith li. 15. & 9. This lande hath A∣rablam in the East side, and the red Sea in the South, & the Sea of middle earth in the West, and mount Lebanian in the North. And so this land is best in trées, chiefe in corne & fruite, with most plen∣tie of •••ke, of Olle, and of bonnye: In this land be 〈…〉 ye mou••• fields moisted with wells, and other Gaters. In those most it••ies bee •• into •• of diuers •ine.
