KVMTH MÔN EFTER ÉL WESTLIK ÒLSÁ KVMTH MÔN BY THA GEDROSTNE who do not tolerate or worship statues of gods. They also will not permit temples or priests, and just like us they uphold the sacred light of Festa, and also maintain permanent fires in their houses. Whomsoever travels very far to the west, however, arrives at the Gedrosians.

Regarding the Gedrosians: those are bastardized with other peoples and speak many different languages. These people are genuine ireful murderers, who always roam the fields with their horses, who always hunt and rob, and who work as mercenaries for princes of the neighboring states, for the sake of whom they hew down whatever they can reach.

The land between the Punjab and the Ganges is just as flat as Fryasland by the sea, with varied landscapes of fields and woods, fertile in all parts, which, however, does not prevent thousands upon thousands sometimes starving to death there. These famines can thus not be attributed to Wralda or Earth, but only to the princes and priests.

The Hindus are just as timid and fearful before their princes as the hinds before the wolves. Therefore, the Ira and others have named them Hindus, which means hinds.
