Note 055
From Chapter 55 of the Decline & Fall

Nestor, apud Leveque, Hist. de Russie, tom. i. p. 78 - 80. From the Dnieper, or Borysthenes, the Russians went to Black Bulgaria, Chazaria, and Syria. To Syria, how? where? when? May we not, instead of Ancient Greek read Ancient Greek (de Administrat. Imp. c. 42. p.113)? The alteration is slight; the position of Suania, between Chazaria and Lazica, is perfectly suitable; and the name was still used in the 11th century (Cedren. tom. ii. p. 770).
