NEAE (Νέαι), a small island near Lemnos, in which Philoctetes, according to some authorities, was bitten by a water-snake. (Steph. B. sub voce comp. Antig. Caryst. Mirab. 100.9.) Pliny places it between Lemnos and the Hellespont (2.87. s. 89). It is called in the charts Stratia, and by the modern Greeks Ἅγιος στρατηγός, the holy warrior, that is, St. Michael. (Walpole, Travels, &c. p. 55.)
