Résumé : The place name (Greek passage) refers to both little volcanic (and deified) lakes in Sicily, and is from Greek origin. Many Indo-European roots could be taken into account: so the root dhel-, meaning either 'yellow as the sand', or 'hollow, deep '. But the root gwelH meaning 'to throw, to strike, to cause to gush' defines better the (Greek passage); their name has certain similarities to the Arcadian verb (Greek passage) (and Attic (Greek passage)). Thus the place name (Greek passage) should date from a Greek (Dorian) colonization within eastern Sicily.
