That portion of the Earth's landmass generally defined by the Atlantic Ocean to the west; the Ural Mountains to the east; the Mediterranean Sea to the south and sundry bits of Occidental Asia on the margins.

Popularly named from Europa, the daughter of a Phonecian king who reputedly introduced the alphabet to the Greeks.
