According to Australian aboriginal mythology, Alinda is the man in the moon. He drowned his two sons after they returned from fishing and lied that they had caught nothing. His two wives then burned him to death. Alinda proclaimed that although death would henceforth be the fate of everyone else, except for three days each month he would live forever. (From John Gunther’s Inside Australia, Harper & Row, New York, 1971, p. 81). R. Bremer in an alternative explanation suggested that Alinda is a name of an ancient city and recent archaeological site in Asia Minor in the province of ancient Caria. (B. G. Marsden) Name proposed by H. Kobold (AN 250, 145 (1933)). _ _.
