Some emphasized the body of the animal: a modern baboon was called a "cercopithecus" (the Greek kerkos for "tail" with pithecus for "ape") or a "drill." (10) (Confusing the matter further, the genus cercopithecus now refers to guenons, an Old World monkey.) A "jocko" described what we would term a West African chimpanzee, derived from Battel's report of the "Engeco" of Angola (published in Purchas's Hakluytus Posthumas, 1625), which itself was most likely a misunderstanding of an African term for the animal: "ncheko." (11) Finally, the modern term "macaques" fuses these histories together: it was originally a French term derived from the Portuguese "macacos" used to describe Brazilian monkeys.
