Headword: Λευκάς
Adler number: lambda,317
Translated headword: Leukas, Leucas, Levkas
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
It is an island situated in front of Epeiros.
Greek Original:
Λευκάς: νῆσός ἐστι πρὸ τῆς Ἠπείρου κειμένη.
Notes:
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.)
