Passing From Thence, By The Cities Of _Pandara_ And _Capagot_[80], I Came To The Famous City Of Calicut.

To avoid prolixity, I pass over many other kingdoms and peoples, such as _Chianul_?

_Dabul_, _Onoue_? _Bangalore_, _Cananore_, _Cochin_, _Cacilon_? and _Calonue_, or _Coulan_[81]. I have so done on purpose to enable me to treat more at large of Calicut, being in a manner the metropolis of all the Indian cities, as the king thereof exceeds all the kings of the east in royal majesty, and is therefore called _Samoory_ or _Zamorin_, which in their language signifies _God on earth_.

[Footnote 79: About that distance south from Cananore is Dermapatam. - E.]

[Footnote 80: No names in the least respect similar to these are to be found in the indicated route between Cananore and Calicut. - E.]

[Footnote 81: Of the three places marked with points of interrogation, the names are so disfigured in the orthography as to be unintelligible; _Cianul_ may possibly be Chaul, _Onouhe_ Onore, and _Cacilon_ Cranganore. - E.]

SECTION VIII.

_Account of the famous City and Kingdom of Calicut._

The city of Calicut is situated on the continent or main land of India, close upon the sea, having no port; but about a mile to the south there is a river which runs into the ocean by a narrow mouth. This river is divided into many branches among the fields in the plain country, for the purpose of being distributed by means of trenches to water the grounds, and one of these branches not exceeding three or four feet deep runs into the city.
