Defence of the wikipedia in ancient greek[edit source]

Ἀλβιών ἢ Βρεττανία ἢ Πρεττανία;[edit source]

Could you tell me which authors use Ἀλβιών, and whether it corresponds exactly to the modern term "Great Britain"? I think that the terminology regarding the British Isles has always been rather confusing! If it was the word used most often for Britain in Classical Attic, perhaps we should rename the article "Βρεττανία" as "Ἀλβιών" and list Βρεττανία and Πρεττανία as alternative names.
