Information about the place (1)

Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


A small island on the coast of Campania, mentioned by Pliny (iii. 6. s. 12), who places it between Pausilypus and Neapolis; it can therefore be no other than the islet or rock now occupied by the Castel dell' Ovo. It is evidently the same which is called by Statius Megalia. (Stat. Silv. ii. 2. 80.)
