A Thracian people.
Greek Original:
*)olizw=nes: e)/qnos *qra|kiko/n.
'Thracian' is incorrect. Olizon was a city in Thessaly: Homer, Iliad 2.717 (web address 1); Strabo 9.5.15-16 (web address 2); Stephanus of Byzantium s.v.
NF: Olizon was actually on the southern coast of the gulf of Pagasai, which was in Magnesia, sometimes counted as part of Thessaly. (Not to be confused with Olooson in Perrhaibia, also sometimes counted as part of Thessaly.)
