There is a temple of Aphrodite with this name -- the name deriving from an event. An Athenian youth was captured by Etruscans and kept in chains as their slave, but the daughter of his captor fell in love with him and let him go; so once he had been freed in this way and had come home he established a temple on the headland from where he had been abducted as a thank-offering to his saviour Aphrodite. And he named the spot Kolias after the limbs [kw=la] which had suffered in the chains. But others [say] that when Ion was sacrificing an offering of a ham [kwlh=], a hawk snatched it and settled on that spot [sc. to eat it]. Hence the spot was named Kolias.[1]
Callimachus in Hecale also mentions [it].[2]
