Table of Contents2
The Nile leaves from the mountains of Al-Qomr situated south of the equator. There one big spring gives birth to ten rivers of which five run to one lake the other five to the other lake. From each lake three rivers leave; they unite in a single lake situated in the first climate; at two degrees south of the equator; it is from that lake that the Nile leaves.
