“MIRA DE INTIMIS GENTIBUS LIBYAE. DE LAPIDE HEXECONTALITHO
‘The wonders of the people that inhabit the inner parts of Libya, and of the stone called Sixtystone.’
‘These folk,’ I translated to myself, ‘dwells in remote and secret places, and celebrates foul mysteries on savage hills. Nothing have they in common with men save the face, and the customs of humanity are wholly strange to them; and they hate the sun. They hiss rather than speak; their voices are harsh, and not to be heard without fear. They boast of a certain stone, which they call Sixtystone; for they say that it displays sixty characters. And this stone has a secret unspeakable name; which is Ixaxar.’
From Arthur Machen’s The Novel of the Black Seal.
