2 B. iv. c. 23.
3 Near the city of Miletus.
4 So called from their resemblance to camels.
5 Lying before the Promontory of Trogilium, mentioned in C. 31.
6 Augustus gave their liberty to the Samians. The island is still called by the Greeks Samo, and by the Turks Susam Adassi.
7 The "Virgin's Island," if so called after Juno, as some say; but according to Strabo, it received its name from the river Parthenius.
8 From its numerous oaks.
9 From the abundance of its flowers.
10 "Of dark," or "black foliage;" in allusion probably to its cypresses.
12 This is note improbably a compound, formed by a mistake of the copyists, of the two names, Parthenia and Aryusa, mentioned by Heraclides.
13 "The Crown." This island was the birth-place of Pythagoras.
