Translated headword: Oichalians, Oechalians
Vetting Status: high
[Those] from a place [sc. called Oichalia/Oechalia].
Greek Original:
*oi)xalh=es: a)po\ to/pou.
Two such places are known: in Aetolia, NW Balkan Greece (Barrington Atlas map 55 grid B3) and -- probably -- on the Aegean island of Euboea. The first one of these is mentioned in Homer, Strabo and elsewhere and has doubtless prompted the present entry.
The classification 'place' is properly non-committal: called a polis in Homer (Iliad 2.730) but a village by Strabo (7.1.10), and unlikely to have been regarded as a polis in the classical and later periods.
The present form of the headword is confined to the Suda (here and already epsilon 3718); *oi)xalih=es elsewhere.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; geography
