Such immense treasures had been laid up in this temple that Pizarro found 900,000 ducats in it, though four hundred savages had taken away as much as they could carry. The Peruvians had so great a veneration for this deity that they offered him whatever they esteemed most precious, and so great was their awe of him that they durst not look upon his image. Even their priests and kings entered his temples with their backs towards his altar, and came out again without daring to turn.
