The Englishman John Locke, during his journey to Jerusalem, stopped also in Cyprus:
he 23, 24 and 25 we sailed our direct course with a small gale of winde and this day we had sight of the island of Cyprus. The first land we discovered was a headland called Cavo de la Griega, and about midnight we ankered by North of the Cape. This Cape is a high hill, long and square and on the East corner it hath a high cop, that appearth unto those at the sea, like a white cloud, for toward the sea it is a white, and it lieth into the sea Southwest. This coast of Cyprus is high declining toward the sea, but it hath no cliffs.
