Taphiae Insŭlae

A number of small islands in the Ionian Sea, lying between the coasts of Leucadia and Acarnania. They were also called the islands of the Teleboae, and their inhabitants were in like manner named Taphii (Τάφιοι) or Teleboae (Τηλεβόαι). The largest of these islands is called Taphus by Homer, but Taphiūs (Ταφιοῦς) or Taphiūsa (Ταφιοῦσα) by later writers.
