Dionys.
Η᾿ δ᾿ ὅςςοι νοτερῇσιν ἐπ᾿ ἠϊόνεσϚι θαλάσϚης
Παῤῤαλίην ναιουσιν ἔσω Σερβωνίδος ἅλμης.
Diodor. Sic l. 1. Ε᾿ςτὶ γάρ ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς τε καίλης Συρίας, καὶ τῆς Αἰγύπτου λίμνη, τῳς μὲν πλάτει ςτενὴ παντελῶς, τῳς δὲ βάθει θαυμασιος, τῳς δὲ μήκει ἐπὶ διαροσίους παρήκουςτα ςταδ´ιους, ἡ προσαγαρἐυςται Σερβωνίς. Τοῖς δὲ ἀπείροις τȏυ προσπελαζοντων ἀνελπίςτους ἐπιφέρει κονδύνους. Στενοῦ γὰρ τȏυ ῥἐυματος ὄντος καὶ ταινίᾳ παραπλησίου, θινῶν τε μεγάλων πάντῃ περικεχυμένων, ἐπειδὰν Νότοι συνεχεῖς πνέουϚιν, ἐπισείεϚ πλη̈θος ἄμμου αὕτη δὲ τὸ μὲν ὕδωρ ρατὰ την` ἐπιφἀνειαν ἄσημαν ποιεῖ, τὸν τε τῆς λίμνης τύπον συμφυῆ τῇ χέρσῳ καὶ κατὰ πᾶν ἀ διαγνωςτον. Eius meminit quoque Plut. in Antonio. Strabo vero l. 17. lacum hunc turpi errore cum Asphaltite Iudaeae confundit, Serbonidem quidem nominans, sed Asphaltiten manifesto describens. Lloydius. Nunc le Baranguerlis vulgo dicitur, et sensim desicit. Estque in Aegypto, sed in limite Palaestinae. Baudrand.
