PHILA one of the small islands on the south coast of Gallia, which Pliny (3.5) enumerates between the Stoechades (Isles d'Hières) and Lero and Lerina (Les Lérins). Pliny's words are: “Tres Stoechades . . . Ab his Sturium, Phoenice, Phila : Lero et Lerina adversum Antipolim.” There seem to be no means of determining which of the islets between the Isles d Hières and Sainte Margucrite represent these three small islands of Pliny. [LERINA; LERON.]
