An island placed by Ptolemy off the coast of the Greater Syrtis, along with Maia and Misynos. The name Pontia is used in the plural by Ps. Skylax to identify all three islands as a group. These islands are identified with modern scholars as prominent parts of the modern Legarah reef (Tre Scogli) off the Libyan coast.
