Sicilia, A noble yle first called Trinacria, afterwarde Sicania, and at the last Sicilia: it is in forme three coruerde, & therefore had the name of Trinacria. The one corner called Pachinus, extendeth towarde the part of Greece, whiche was called Pelopoonêsus, now Morea. The second coruer, called Pelorus, lyeth toward Italy: The thyrde called Lilybeus, it extendeth toward Affrica: of the whiche Pelorus exceedeth in the temperaunce of the earth, for with no wet there may be any myre, nor by any drouth, dust. This yle containeth in circuite (as Solinus writeth) three thousande furlonges, which is of Italian miles 375. as Diodorus Siculus writeth 4360. But Plinius sayth, that the three corners be vistaunt, from Pelorus to Pachinus, by land 166. myles: from thence to Lilybæum, 200. myles: from thence to Pe lorus, 170. myles: and sayth also, that Agrippa affirmed it to be in circuit 618. miles, which doe not agree with Solinus nor Diodorus, which may happen to be by the diuersitie of furlongs, called in Latine Stadia. The sertilitie of this yle in all grayne, beautie of medowes, delicatenesse of waters colde and hote, mountaynes and caues miraculous, and other thinges there exceeding notable, many authours haue written and wondred at, both Grekes and Latines.
