In This Armenia Be Full Many Good Cities, But
Taurizo Is Most Of Name.
After this is the kingdom of Media, that is full long, but it is
not full large, that beginneth
Toward the east to the land of
Persia and to Ind the less; and it stretcheth toward the west,
toward the kingdom of Chaldea and toward the Septentrion,
descending toward the little Armenia. In that kingdom of Media
there be many great hills and little of plain earth. There dwell
Saracens and another manner of folk, that men clepe Cordynes. The
best two cities of that kingdom be Sarras and Karemen.
After that is the kingdom of Georgia, that beginneth toward the
east to the great mountain that is clept Abzor, where that dwell
many diverse folk of diverse nations. And men clepe the country
Alamo. This kingdom stretcheth him towards Turkey and toward the
Great Sea, and toward the south it marcheth to the great Armenia.
And there be two kingdoms in that country; that one is the kingdom
of Georgia, and that other is the kingdom of Abchaz. And always in
that country be two kings; and they be both Christian. But the
king of Georgia is in subjection to the great Chan. And the king
of Abchaz hath the more strong country, and he always vigorously
defendeth his country against all those that assail him, so that no
man may make him in subjection to no man.
In that kingdom of Abchaz is a great marvel.
