Medamʹothi (Greek, never in any place)


The island at which the fleet of Pantagruel landed on the fourth day of their voyage, and where they bought many choice curiosities, such as the picture of a man’s voice, echo drawn to life, Plato’s ideas, the atoms of Epicuʹros, a sample of Philomeʹla’s needlework, and other objects of vertu which could be obtained in no other portion of the globe. (Rabelais: Pantagruel, iv. 3.)
