It is a city of Thrace, which Greeks first inhabited with Alopekonnesians[1], who afterwards brought in additional settlers from Mytilene and Kyme.
And out of this [comes] Ainites, the citizen [of Ainos].
Greek Original:
Αἶνος: πόλις ἐστὶ τῆς Θρᾴκης, ἣν Ἕλληνες τὰ πρῶτα Ἀλωπεκοννησίοις κατῴκισαν, ὕστερον δὲ ἐκ Μιτυλήνης καὶ Κύμης ἐπηγάγοντο ἐποίκους. καὶ ἐξ αὐτοῦ Αἰνίτης, ὁ πολίτης.
Notes:
From Harpokration s.v. Ainious: see already under alphaiota 224.
(Entry out of alphabetical order.)
[1] So the transmitted text, with Alopekonnesians in the dative case -- but in Harpokration it is nominative, as it clearly should be: "a city whose first Greek inhabitants were Alopekonnesians".
[2] So already under alphaiota 219. (But in fact Ainios is the norm.)
