Wikipedia, Jan. 4, 2010 (Heraklion or Iraklion (Greek: Ηράκλειον [Ērakleion]; Venetian: Candia); largest city and capital of Crete; also spelled Herakleion, a transliteration of the ancient Greek and Katharevousa name, Ἡράκλειον, or Iraklio; for centuries it was known as Candia, a Venetian adaptation of the earlier Greek name Χάνδαξ (= Chandax) or Χάνδακας (= Chandakas), which in turn came from the Arabic rabḍ al-ḫandaq; English form Candy, derived from French Candie; under the Ottomans, known officially as Kandiye, but informally in Greek as Megalo Kastro (Μεγάλο Κάστρο); in the local vernacular, it is often called Κάστρο (= Kastro))
