On the top left, a statue of Euthymènes. Euthymènes, also in the Vth and IVth century BC, sailed south along the west coast of Africa as far as a river which was infested with crocodiles and whose waters were driven back by strong sea breezes. He thought that this river was the Nile, but it may in fact have been the Senegal River.
