The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 19

And know ye that the city of Constantinople is very beautiful and full of wealth, and that the walls surrounding it are good, and that it hath three corners, and the sea Hellespont going round its side; and men call that sea the Mouth of Constantinople, and others call it the Arm of St. George. And there is another place on a full fair plain beside this stream, wherein was the city of Troy once upon a time, and the Greeks destroyed it.
