PHINTON

PHINTON or PHINTONIS INSULA (Φίντωνος νῆσος, Ptol.), a small island in the strait between Sardinia and Corsica, mentioned both by Pliny and Ptolemy. It is probably the one now called the Isola della Maddalena, the most considerable of the group so situated. (Plin. Nat. 3.6. s. 13; Ptol. 3.3.8.)
