Of Lectonia. chap. 89.

LEctonia is a Prouince of Scithia: The men thereof be called Lectini, & be men of comely stature, strong warri∣ours and fierce. The soile of the country of Lectonia beareth wel corne & fruit, & is full of moores and marreis in diuerse places, with many woods & riuers, wa∣ters, and beasts wilde and tame: and is strengthened with woodes, moores, and marreis, and hath little other strength but woods, moores, and marreis. There∣fore vnneth that land may be assailed in Summer, but in winter when waters & riuers be store.
