A Bahar Contains Twenty Faraculas.

A faracula fourteen aratollae and a third; as twenty-three Venetian aratollae are equal to twenty-two Portuguese pounds.

A golden ducat is equal to twenty favi.

As to those things which are carried from Europe for sale at Calicut, a faracula of brass sells for forty-five favi. A faracula of white coral for 1000. A faracula of silver for twenty favi. A faracula of spurious coral for 300. A faracula of alum twenty. An almenum of saffron sells for eighty favi: the almenum exceeds the Portuguese pound two aratollae and a half, and is therefore equal to about three Venetian pounds.

It appears proper to mention the regions from whence the various spices are brought to Calicut. Pepper is brought from a certain tower near the coast, about fifty leagues beyond Calicut. Cinnamon comes from a country called _Zolon_, Ceylon, 260 leagues beyond Calicut, and from no other place. Cloves come from the district of _Meluza_, which is twelve Portuguese leagues from Calicut, and is in the country of Cananore. Nutmegs and mastic come from _Meluza_, which is 740 leagues from Calicut[2]. Castor, which is musk, comes from a certain region called Pegu, 500 leagues from Calicut. Fine pearls come from the coast of _Armuzi_[3], 700 leagues from Calicut. Spikenard and myrabolans from the province of _Columbaia_[4], 600 leagues from Calicut. Cassia _in twigs_[5] is procured in the territory of Calicut. Frankincense is brought from _Saboea_[6], 800 leagues distant.
