I turned from her to Pharos, and found him still seated in his chair with his eyes fixed steadfastly upon me.
Phare is from the island of Pharos where there was a famous lighthouse.
The tower was named Pharos, which is the origin of the term "pharology" applied to the science of lighthouse construction.
Something was wrong, Pharos confessed ruefully—what could it be?
Before the beacon was built, the men lived in the Pharos floating light; a vessel which was moored not far from the Rock.
This "Pharos" was in height 450 feet, and could be seen at a distance of 100 miles.
Dimly the sky-line was visible; by the Pharos and its mole loomed the vague tracery of masts.
The furnace blazing on the summit of the tower of Pharos died down with the moon.
And there the wells still remain, a standing example, a Pharos to enlighten the world.
Could Pharos, after disposing of me as he had done, have stolen it and transported it away?
as a word for a lighthouse, 1550s, in reference to the island of Pharos off the coast of Alexandria, on which Ptolemy Philadelphius built a mighty lighthouse.
