Diagram #7 (Lucian's Isle of Dreams)


Lucian of Syria (c. 125 A.D.- c. 190 A.D.)

from A True Story (trans. Lionel Casson):
"There were dreams with wings, freakish dreams, and dreams which, dressed up like kings, queens, gods, and the like, looked as if they were going to a carnival. Many we recognized because we had seen them long ago. These actually came up and greeted us like old friends, then invited us into their homes and, putting us to sleep, extended us the warmest and most generous hospitality..."

I could not load the map in the ArcGis. And yet I fancy the bats prove that we're talking of Austin.
