"Starting From Mait (Bintang), And Leaving On The Left Tiyuma (Timoan), In Five Days' Journey, One Goes To Kimer (Kmer,

Cambodia), and after three days more, following the coast, arrives to Sanf; then to Lukyn, the first point of call

In China, 100 parasangs by land or by sea; from Lukyn it takes four days by sea and twenty by land to go to Kanfu." [Canton, see note, supra p. 199.] (See De Goeje's Ibn Khordadhbeh, p. 48 et seq.) But we come now to the difficulty. Professor De Goeje writes to me: "It is strange that in the Relation des Voyages of Reinaud, p. 20 of the text, reproduced by Ibn al Fakih, p. 12 seq., Sundar Fulat (Pulo Condore) is placed between Sanf and the China Sea (Sandjy); it takes ten days to go from Sanf to Sundar Fulat, and then a month (seven days of which between mountains called the Gates of China.) In the Livre des Merveilles de l'Inde (pp. 85, 86) we read: 'When arrived between Sanf and the China coast, in the neighbourhood of Sundar Fulat, an island situated at the entrance of the Sea of Sandjy, which is the Sea of China....' It would appear from these two passages that Sanf is to be looked for in the Malay Peninsula. This Sanf is different from the Sanf of Ibn Khordadhbeh and of Abulfeda." (Guyard's transl. II. ii. 127.)

It does not strike me from these passages that Sanf must be looked for in the Malay Peninsula.
