The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Ischia.

The acropolis of Monte Vico has Bronze Age settlement remains and Euboean Greeks established a colonial settlement on the island in the eighth century BC. An inscribed cup ("Nestor's Cup" ca. 730 BC) was discovered on the island in 1953 and represents important early evidence for the Greek alphabet.
