Abstract

The etymology of the island’s name, Lipsí, connects its identity with the distant past of the region. The earliest references under the name Lepsia trace back to Hellenistic and generally pre-Christian times without a more precise dating, as indicated by the relevant inscriptions found on the island1 (Volanakis 2002: 43 and 37; Dreliosi-Irakleidou 2003; Volanakis 2007: 64).
