Symeon and Nasira return to Golos, arriving there about midday. Naturally, Symeon will look towards his trusted sailor (whose name, I believe, hasn't been set yet), to find if there has been any news. There hasn't been; a new ship has come into the harbour from Chalkis, and is unloading, but there are no special tales about it ... it is carrying dates and almonds. The small Turkish resident force in Golos has broken up a wedding, and there have been some harsh words - threats and the like. But little else.
The sailor, whatever his name is, asks permission to take the boat out during the day, to fish.
