TROGI´LIUM

TROGI´LIUM (Τρωγίλιον), a promontory formed by the western termination of Mount Mycale, opposite the island of Samos. Close to this promontory there was an island bearing the same name. (Strab. xiv. p.636; Steph. B. sub voce Τρώγιλος, according to whom it was also called Trogilia; Act. Apost. 20.15, where its name is Trogyllion.) Pliny (5.31. s. 37) speaks of three islands being called Trogiliae, their separate names being Philion, Argennon, and Sandalion.
