I have been looking for potiyil (and also for potiyam and malayam)
in several texts. Some have a real basis like the Akam text
that refers to titiyan2. Some are purely fiction stories
like the manimEkalai passages where we see a viJcaiyan2.
To sum up, these MaNimEkalai passages cannot be read
as coming from a geography book.

  Nothing unusual! All Indian religious texts are in this
  manner alike. May be many world religions' books too.
