Pronunciation[edit]

Proper noun[edit]

零陵

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

Usage notes[edit]

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.
