Names that other countries have for this feature:
A large peninsula on the E coast of Graham Land comprising several mainly snow-covered summits. It rises above Larsen Ice Shelf and extends from the narrow neck of land E of Medea Dome for 42 mi, terminating in Cape Framnes. This feature was first seen from seaward on Dec. 1, 1893 by Capt. C.A. Larsen, who named one of the high peaks Mount Jason after his ship. Larsen was too distant to map the area in detail, but in 1902 the SwedAE under Nordenskjold observed the area from Borchgrevink Nunatak and reported the peaks seen by Larsen to be separated from the mainland. The name Jason Island was subsequently used for Larsen's discovery, but in 1955 the FIDS determined this feature to be a large peninsula.
