Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  The Aegilips of Homer (Il. ii. 633) is probably the same with Aegireus, and is placed by Leake at the modern village of Anoge; [p. 98] while he believes the modern capital town of Bathy to occupy the site of Crocyleia. (Il. I. c.) It is true that Strabo places Aegilips and Crocyleia in Leucas; but this appears inconsistent with Homer and other ancient authorities.
