A group of islands off the coast of Caria, mentioned by Homer (Hom. Il. 2.677
), of which the principal one was Calymna. For details, see CALYMNA
Two small islands off the coast of Troas, said to be situated between Tenedos and the promontory Lectum. (Strab. xiii. p.604
; Quint. Smyrn. 12.453; Eustath. ad Hom. Il.
2.677; Tzetz. ad Lycophr.
But no islands are found in this position; and it is not impossible that they may owe their name to the passage in Homer mentioned above, though the Calydnae of Homer are in an entirely different position.
