PROGEESS OF KING EICHAED. day of September ; and, passing an archiépiscopal city called Amalfi, and another archiépiscopal city called Cosenza, arrived on the eighteenth day of September at a city and castle called Escala. Near this castle is a small island, where are said to have been the schools of Lucan, and there is still a fine chamber beneath the ground, in which Lucan used to study. The night following the king slept in a village, the name of which is Lacerait, in the priorate of Monte Cassio. On the nineteenth day of September the king passed through the priorate which is called Saint Michael de Josaphat, to another priory of the same order, which is called Santa Maria de Fosses, where there is a castle called Saint Luke. On the twentieth day of September the king, passing by a castle which is called Lamante, came to a town called Saint Euphemia. On the twenty-first day of September the king came to Melida, and was there honorably received and entertained at the abbey of the Holy Trinity. Here there is a tower of wood close by the abbey, by means of which Robert Guiscard attacked and took the castle and town of Melida. On the twenty-second day of September, the king of England, departing fromMelida with a single knight, passed through a certain small town, and, after he had passed through, turned towards a certain house in which he heard a hawk, and, entering the house,87 took hold of it. On his refusing to give it up, numbers of peasants came running from every quarter, and made an attack on him with sticks and stones. One of them then drew his knife against the king, upon which the latter giving him a blow with the flat of his sword, it snapped asunder, whereupon he pelted the others with stones, and with difficulty making his escape out of their hands, came to a priory called Le Baniare ; but, making no stay there, he crossed the great river89 which is caBed Le Faro de Meschines, and passed the night in a tent near a stone tower which Bes at the entrance of the Faro, on the SicBian side. At the entrance of the Faro, near Labinaria, Bes that peril of the sea which is called ScyHa, and at the outlet of the same river is another peril of the sea which is caBed Charybdis. On the twenty-third day of September, Richard, king of England, arrived at Messina, hi Sicily, with many busses and gaBeys, in such state and with such a noise of trumpets and clarions, that alarm seized those who were in the city.
