It is an island situated in front of Epeiros.
Greek Original:
Λευκάς: νῆσός ἐστι πρὸ τῆς Ἠπείρου κειμένη.
From Harpokration (and Photius) s.v., commenting in the first instance on its mention in Demosthenes 9.34 and going on to cite Strabo and Menander.
NF: its status as an island was disputed, as it was only separated from the mainland by a mud-flat, through which a canal periodically ran. (DW: for this see e.g. Strabo 1.3.18, 10.2.8.)
