Name of a city.[1]
The home town of Zeno. It was previously called Hyle, being a colony of the Phocaeans, a frugal city which could nourish only good men. He loved it better than the arrogance of the Athenians, although he did not spend much time with them, but ended his life there.[2]
The ethnic is *)elea/ths ["Eleatic"]; and another city is called *elai/a with a diphthong; its citizen is *elai+/ths. And there is a gulf so-called.[3]
