Ischia’s Thermal Waters Help Make the Island Italian

6 AD – The Romans discard Pithekoussai, which was the name the Greeks had given to the island, for the name Enaria. The island gets traded to the Neapolitans for Capri, its neighbor. Eventually, during this period, the island receives its name, Ischia. The Romans build “thermae” or baths on the island, according to Ischia Review.
