The Travels of Marco Polo, by Marco Polo

Chapter xxiii.

He Begins to Speak of the Straits of Constantinople, but Decides to Leave that Matter.

At the straits leading into the Great Sea, on the west side, there is a hill called the FARO. — But since beginning on this matter I have changed my mind, because so many people know all about it, so we will not put it in our description, but go on to something else. And so I will tell you about the Tartars of the Ponent, and the lords who have reigned over them.
