零陵

ChineseEdit

simpl. and trad.

PronunciationEdit

Proper nounEdit

零陵

  1. (archaic) Lingling Commandery (present day Lingling district of Yongzhou, Hunan)

Usage notesEdit

In chapter 15 of the Mao Zonggang edition of Romance of the Three Kingdoms, it states that Zhang Ying was made to defend Lingling, after having suffered a defeat. However, modern scholars believe this to be a misprint of Moling (秣陵), located in present day Jiangning District of Nanjing.
