The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 163

There is another strange thing in that country, all


manner of fish that are in the sea come in turn to the shore of that country, and there abide for three days and three nights, until the folk of the country take as much as they please of them; and as one kind of fish departs another kind comes in its place, until men do to them in the same way. And no one in the world knows what is the cause of this; but they of that island say that the fish do this reverence to their king, because of the multitude of children and wives that he hath.
