Note 056
From Chapter 60 of the Decline & Fall

In this voyage, almost all the geographical names are corrupted by the Latins. The modern appellation of Chalcis, and all Euboea, is derived from its Euripus, Euripo, Negri-po, Negropont, which dishonours our maps (D'Anville, Geographie Ancienne, tom. i. p. 263).
