[sc. Halos/Halus is] a Thessalian city. But the citizens [are] (H)aleis.
Greek Original:
*)ale/as: po/lis *qessalikh/. oi( de\ poli=tai *)alei=s.
Abridged from Harpokration s.v., an entry generated by the appearance of that accusative-plural ethnikon (the present headword) in Demosthenes 19.36.
Halos was not a major city, even in Thessaly, but it assumed some importance at precisely the time (third quarter of the C4 BCE) of Demosthenes' speech. See generally N.G.L. Hammond and G.T. Griffith, A History of Macedonia 2 (Oxford 1979) 339ff.
