PALMA´RIA (Palmaruola), a small island in the Tyrrhenian sea, the most westerly of the group now known as the Ponza Islands, or Isole di Ponza. It is between 3 and 4 miles long, and not more than a quarter of a mile broad; and was doubtless in ancient, as well as modern times, a dependency of the neighbouring and more considerable island of Pontia (Ponza), from which it is only 5 miles distant. (Plin. Nat. 3.6. s. 12; Mel. 2.7.18; Varr. R. R. 3.5.7.)
