İçoğlan, servant to the Sultan.
In Plate X. there was given the portrait of a Page of the Grand Signior. The present plate represents one of the Ichlogans, a body of young men, from whom the pages are selected. The nature of this institution has already been explained in the description of the before-mentioned plate. A great number of them are also brought up in the interior of the Seraglio, besides those in the suburb of Pera ; and the white eunuchs, to whose care they are entrusted, frequently treat them with the greatest severity.
