The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 37

And though there are five hundred miles from Rhodes as far as this, still that is the place where the passage of the sea is most perilous. Howbeit it is possible for men to go to Cyprus without coming to Rhodes. There are many good cities in that island (Cyprus), and in the city called Nicosia, there is an Archbishop with four bishops under him. And the harbour of Famagosta is the best harbour in the world, and Christians and Saracens are there, and every nation on earth near one another. And in that island is buried Saint Genenont (Sozomenus?) for whom that country holds a feast, and to whom it pays great honour, and in the castle Amaros (Amours) in the same Cyprus is the body of Hilarion in keeping and in exceeding great honour. And in Cyprus beside Famagosta Saint Bernard10 was born.
