Peloponnesus peninsula was known as Morea in the Middle Ages, either because it sort of looks like a mulberry leaf, or because it was densely planted with mulberry trees used by the Byzantine silk industry.

Non Madol

Micronesian island if Pohpei, the ancient Non Madol can claim to be the
world’s most mysterious City. Archaeologists are a loss to explain how it
was constructed and why it was suddenly abandoned around 1500 AD. Nor do they
have any idea of the purpose of the submerge tunnels connecting many of the
larger islets in this “Venice of the Pacific”.
