7 Feeling sad because of our bad lack we reached the land of Lestrigonas after a few days. I sent a group of some men to explore the country. They met a girl, the king’s daughter, who led us to her father Antifatis. He gulped one of our partners and the others ran to us scared to death, back to the ship. Then we saw thousands of huge Lestrigonas to emerge from everywhere, chasing us and throwing stones to us. Many of us became meal for those cannibal creatures and as for me I just managed to save the ship and my men from death. This was due to the fact that I had thought of putting the ship to a safe place and not in the harbor.
