Neae (Neai), a small island near Lemnos, in which Philoctetes, according to some
authorities, was bitten by a water-snake. (Steph. B. s. v.; comp. Antig. Caryst.
Mirab. c. 9.) Pliny places it between Lemnos and the Hellespont (ii. 87. s. 89).
It is called in the charts Stratia, and by the modern Greeks Hagios strategos,
the holy warrior, that is, St. Michael. (Walpole, Travels, &c. p. 55.)
