Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated in the original description, uncertain. Lysilla could refer to a feminine character appearing in the play 'The Incredible Things Beyond Thule' or 'The Wonders Beyond Thule', by the ancient Greek author Antonius Diogenes (2nd century CE). Lysilla has been identified as the woman from Thule with whom Mantinias, another character of the play, falls in love. The name Lysilla also appears in different plays by the ancient Greek author Aristophanes (c. 446 - c. 386 BC), always referring to feminine characters. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender Feminine (see above note on 'Etymology'). [details]
