[1] Apeliotes is the Ionic form, used also in Attic, but Apheliotes occurs later in Attic (LSJ s.v.: web address 1). Other Ionic dialects lost the initial "h" earlier than Attic did, giving elios instead of helios for "sun." In Latin, Catullus and Pliny the Elder use the word (Catullus 26.3 at web address 2, Pliny Natural History 2.51 at web address 3); but it is unclear whether it should be spelled with h or not. LSJ also mention instances in Aulus Gellius (see web address 4) and Seneca.
[2] Posidippus fr. 41 Kock, now 42 K.-A. Ionic for ephelis "cover, lid:" derived either from helos "nail-head" or from helios "sun."
