Headword: Πύγελλα
Adler number: pi,3107
Translated headword: Phygela, Phygella, Puygela, Pygella
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Pygella,] a place, which we call Phygella; from where it is possible to make the ferry crossing to Crete.
Greek Original:
Πύγελλα: τόπος, ὁ παρ' ἡμῖν λεγόμενος Φύγελλα: ὅθεν ἐστὶ περαιώσασθαι τὸν πρὸς Κρήτην κατάγοντα πορθμόν.
Notes:
Since P(h)ygela (sic: single lambda) lay on the coast of Asia Minor, south of Ephesus (pi 3109), 'Crete' here is surely nonsense; Samos, rather?
The entry is in any case out of alphabetical order.
Keywords: daily life; definition; geography
