When they were well established, their merchants traded fancy copper weapons and all kinds of jewelry for our iron weapons and hides of wild animals, which were plentiful in our southern lands. The Gols, however, celebrated various vile idolatrous rites, attracting the coast dwellers with their whorish girls and the sweetness of their poisonous wine. If one of our folk had committed such a bad offense that his life was in danger, the Gols afforded him refuge and shelter, and lead him to Phoenicia — that is Palmland. When he was settled there, they made him write his family, friends and allies that the land was so good and the people so happy that no one could imagine it.
