 Lisbon.Lisuar’te of Greece. 
E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
Lismaha’go (Captain),
in Smollett’s Humphry Clinker. Very conceited, fond of disputation, jealous of honour, and brim-full of national pride. This poor but proud Scotch officer marries Miss Tabitha Bramble. The romance of Captain Lismaha’go among the Indians is worthy of Cervantes.   1
