the native Siculi, where wheat growing wild was said to
have been first put under cultivation.



678 ITALY: ISLANDS

The town was deserted time after time, but was always
repeopled, and still exists as Leontini, though scourged
with malaria, which is attributed to a shallow and stale
lake, at the north of the town, that may be the product
of the ancient and lethal fountain.

Pliny; XXXI. 19.



492-495

TEMENITIS. ARCHIDEMIA. MAGiEA. MlLICHIE

The people of the Syracusan territory drank of the
fountains (the bracketed names being their modern
designations) Temenitis (Fonte di Canali); Archidemia
(Cefalino); Magaea (Fontana della Maddalina); and
Milichie (Lampismotto).

Pliny; III. 14.

Anapus

Ceres, when searching for Proserpine, passed the
Spring of the gently flowing Anapus. Nearly seven
hundred years before the Christian era the town of Acrae
was founded by this Spring, and the remains of it have
been discovered and gruesomely described as the cadaver
of a great city.

Above the Spring there are some remarkable life-size
figures cut in the surface of the living rock, the chief
figure representing Isis, and, if she, as is supposed, was
the Egyptian original of the Romans' Ceres, it is possible
that the story of Ceres and Proserpine is written on the
rock in these carvings, and connects Anapus, as closely as



SICILY 679

his wife Cyane, with the incident of the loss of the god-
dess' daughter.

The Spring is a mile from the modern town Buscemi
and twenty-four miles from Syracuse; its waters gush out
of the limestone rock in considerable volume and are
unusually limpid and clear ; they flow through a beautiful
valley and into the harbor of Syracuse, being joined
within a mile of their mouth by the stream from Cyane.

Ovid; Fasti; IV. In 468.



497
Amenanus

The Springs of Amenanus at one time flowed, and at
another time were stopped up.

After a stoppage that might have endured for several
years, the Springs would reappear and flow abundantly
until, as it was supposed, their passage to the surface was
again obstructed by some disturbance in Mt. Etna, from
whose foot they issued.

The Springs rose near Catania through which ran a
small river they made, a river now called the Giudicello.

The god of the Springs was represented on the ancient
city's coins, and may still be seen in specimens that have
survived to the present time.

The fountains, which continue subject to the vagaries
of the volcano and have periodical intermissions that
establish their identity, were a few miles from the place
at which visitors started out on their venturesome climb
to the top of the two mile high mountain, whose frequent
commotions were said to be caused by the giant Typhosus
in his frenzied efforts to escape from the mass that Zeus
threw over him at the time of the giants' war; when
heated by some prolonged attempt to throw off the

mountain, his body scorches the earth, and his breath
catching fire is exhaled as streams of flame that burst
through the summit and redden the sky.

Long ago a popular and dramatic story, inculcating
filial devotion, described how two Catanaeans, Amphino-
mus and Anapias, braving great danger during an erup-
tion of Etna, attempted to outrun a river of molten lava,
while loaded down with the weight of their aged parents.
The cataract of fiery lava gained many yards in every
second of its pursuit, and was soon at the heels of the
panting fugitives, and on the point of rushing over them
and their terrified burdens, when it miraculously swerved
aside and passed harmlessly by, to the wonder and de-
light of all breathless listeners.

It was from Catania that Rome received its first sun-
dial which was set up in the Forum in B.C. 263.

Ovid; Meta. XV. 278.
Strabo; VI. 2. § 3.
Pausanias: X. 28.



SARDINIA

498-500
Sardinia

The island of Sardinia was free from all venomous
creatures save a tarantula-like spider; and of all noxious
grasses but a bitter herb called the Sardoa, which grew
about its Springs. It resembled parsley, and anyone who
eat of it was said to die laughing, the resulting distortion
of the features being called the Sardonic Grin, a term that
came to be applied to all meaningless or simulated
laughter.

Perhaps an echo of this laughter of torment may be
found in the name of the fountain of Pains, a sacred
Spring enshrined in a temple that was uncovered during
excavations of the Italian ministry of Public Instruction.
The structure is supposed to be three thousand years old,
but the Spring is still running, and the medicinal prop-
erties attributed to it may have been made use of in the
temple by priests who treated victims of the herb.

The roots of the herbs imparted none of their proper-
ties to the Springs, though they were said to cause the
Sardinian honey's bitterness, a defect that still prevails,
although the accused herb has not yet been identified.

Three of the Springs of the island were called Lesitanae,
Hypsitanae, and Neapolitan® ; the latter being now known
as Sardara, and the first two as Benettuti and Fordun-
gianus.

681



682 SARDINIA

In addition to the mystery of the unknown herb,
Sardinia has more than a thousand other mysteries in a
myriad of towers of massive masonry whose builders are
unknown; they are called Noraghes and are some forty
feet high, and shaped like cones with their upper halves
cut off,

Pausanias; X. 17-
