an island off the coast of Ireland, mentioned by Ptolemy (2.2
), as lying to the east of Ireland, and being uninhabited. Pliny also mentions it (4.30).
It is probably Lambay Island.
However, the Monumenta Britannica
not only suggests for Limnos (Ptolemy's Limnus
) the modern names of Lamabay, Lymen,
but they also distinguish it from Limnus
s) which they make Dalkey.
