Ἐν γραμμαῖς τὸν κόσμον ἀριθμηθέντα νόησον·
ἄρκτους, ὠκεανόν, δύσιν, ἀντολίην τε νότον τε,
χεῖμα, θέρος, φυσικάς τ' ἀτραποὺς, σκολιάς τε κελεύθους,
Αἰθίοπάς τ' ἀδρανεῖς, Γερμανῶν δύσμορα φῦλα,
Σαυρομάτας χοίροισιν ἐοικότας, ἠδὲ καὶ αὐτῆς
αἰνομόρου Σκυθίης χαλεπὸν γένος, ἄχρις ἐς ἠῶ
Ἰνδῶν τε Σηρῶν τε, τὸ γὰρ πέρας ἀντολίης γῆς.
