Street scene in Dali

 'Pedalium is thought to be a corruption of the ancient name of Idalium, there having been a town of that name in Cyprus, which was sacred to Venus: the Idalian wood was near it, in which according to ancient fables, Adonis, a fafourite of Venus, was killed by a boar, and they feign that she turned him into a flower.'
