Attested: Ptolemy 2,3,2 Ιηνα estuary
Where: Wigtown Bay, into which the rivers Cree and Fleet flow, around NX4951.
Name Origin: Greek ιηνα was the aorist form of the verb ιαινω ‘to melt, to warm, to cheer’. Wigtown Bay is notably warm for its latitude, thanks to the Gulf Stream.
Notes: Ptolemy gave almost the same coordinates for the place Λουκοπιβια.
