"Of the historical names, we recognized only one: the impostor-wizard Smerdis, and he was invoked, really, as a metaphor. The article seemed to define the borders of Uqbar, but its nebulous points of reference were rivers and craters and mountain chains of the region itself. We read, for example, that the Axa delta and the lowlands of Tsai Khaldun mark the southern boundary, and that wild horses breed on the islands of the delta. That was at the top of page 918" -from Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius by Jorge Luis Borges

(pages from the Codex Seraphinianus by Luigi Serafini, 1981)
