St. Michael's Mount

Natural Rock Feature


Julian mentions this as part of his text on Mulfra Quoit, on page 165 of The Modern Antiquarian. He says that “for it is here that we have a clear view south to St. Michael’s Mount, known to the Ancient Greeks as Iktis. And it was to Iktis that the great Greek sea captain Pytheus came in 325 BCE, searching for the legendary tin islands that the Greeks called the Cassiterides.” pure joy Posted by pure joy
