A THEOSOPHIST : APOLLONIUS OF TYANA

when he made his attempt on the place with Hercules, ordered the Panes= to make the assault, as being able to stand earthquake ; but they were thunderstruck by the Sages and fell in confusion : and from that day the rock bears as it were engraved the various attitudes of their discomfiture. They saw the hill enveloped in a cloud, in which the Sages live, visible or invisible at pleasure. Whether the mount had any other gates they could not tell : for the encircling cloud did not permit either the excluded or the admitted observer to determine this particular.

Apollonius went up somewhere on the south side, following the Indian. The first thing he saw was a well four fathoms wide, from the depths of which a bright blue radiance rose to the surface ; and when the sun at noon stood over it, this radiance was hoisted by the sunlight and moved upwards, giving the appearance of a summer rainbow. Later he learned that the ground beneath this well was sandaracinous,2 and the water of it accounted sacrosanct : none drank it or drew it, but all the neighbouring part of India took their solemn oaths by it. Near this was a natural cauldron of fire which emitted a leaden-coloured flame ; but neither smoke nor any smell issued from it ; nor did the cauldron ever overflow, but always rose in sufficient volume just to brim the pit. In it the Indians purify themselves for involuntary sins ; and the Sages therefore call the well the Well of Detection, and the fire the Fire of Pardon. They saw also a pair of black stone jars,s called Of the Rains and Of the Winds. Should India be oppressed by a drought, the Jay of the Rains on being opened gives forth clouds and moistens the whole country : but should the rains be in excess, the closing of it stops them. The Jay of the Winds, I conceive, has the same function as Aeolus' skin-bag : a for by
