Lisbon (Lisboa) is the capital of Portugal. It is located on one of the sides of the Tagus River (Rio Tejo, in portuguese).
There are a lot of theories about the name, including origin from the Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Visigoths and the Muslims:
- "Olisipone" a name from a Greek legend, in which Ulysses founded Lisbon and gave it that name;
- "Olissipona" as "Olisipone" mixed with Latin;
- "Oliosipon" by Ptolemy;
- "Ulishbona" by the Visigoths;
- and "Al-Lixbûnâ" or "Al-Ushbuna" by the Muslims (Mozarabes).
