ME´GARIS a small island on the coast of Campania, mentioned by Pliny (3.6. s. 12), who places it between Pausilypus and Neapolis; it can therefore be no other than the islet or rock now occupied by the Castel dell' Ovo. [NEAPOLIS] It is evidently the same which is called by Statius Megalia. (Stat. Silv. 2.2. 80.)
