§ 52. Discourse on the Country of B.rādhās

East of it is the river Ātil; south of it, the Khazars; west of it, the V.n.nd.r [sic]; north of it, the Turkish Pechenegs (Bachanāk-i Turk). They are a people professing the creed of the Ghūz. They own felt-huts, and burn their dead. They obey the Khazars (andar ṭā'at-i Khazariyān). Their wealth is in weasel-furs (pūst-i dala). They have two kings who keep separate from each other (nayāmīzand).
