（τὰ Κεραύνια ὄρη
). The modern Khimara; a range of
mountains extending from the frontier of Illyricum along the coast of Epirus, derived
their name from the frequent thunder-storms which occurred among them (κεραυνός
). These mountains made the coast of Epirus dangerous to ships. They were
also called Acroceraunia, though this name was properly applied to the promontory separating
the Adriatic and Ionian seas. The inhabitants of these mountains were called Ceraunii.
