PITYU´SA

PITYU´SA (Πιτυοῦσα or Πιτυοῦσσα, a contr of [p. 2.636]Πιτυόεσσα), literally, “abounding in pine-trees.”


1.

An island off the promontory Scyllaeum, or Bucephala, in Troezenia in Argolis. (Paus. 2.34.8.) Pliny mentions (4.12. s. 19) an island Pityusa in the Argolic gulf, but from the order in which it occurs in Pliny, it would seem to be a different island from the preceding.


2.

One of the Demonnesi in the Propontis, according to Hesychius (s. v.). [DEMONNESI]
