§ 19-22 "The Regions of the World" 101
§ 20. Discourse on the Turkish Pechenegs
East of this country are the limits (ḥudūd)
of the Ghūz;
| south of it, those of the Burṭās and Barādhās; west of it, those of the Majgharī and the Rūs; north of it, (the river) Rūthā. This country in all respects resembles (that of) the Kīmāk and is at war with all its neighbours. The (Pechenegs) have no towns; their chief (mihtar) is one of themselves.
