Headword: Κολώνεια
Adler number: kappa,1962
Translated headword: Koloneia, Colonea
Vetting Status: high
A name of a place.
Greek Original:
Κολώνεια: ὄνομα τόπου.
More precisely, of a city. The headword is simply a Greek transliteration of the Latin word colonia.
As such, it is presumably generic (as LSJ s.v. implies), but note in addition that three specific places of this name are attested. The best-known of them is in western Cappadocia: originally Garsaura, then Colonia Claudia Archelais, and hence Koloneia. See Barrington Atlas map 63 grid E4. There was also a Koloneia in Pontos, NE of Dasteira and Nikopolis, and this was probably also a variant name of Sinis/Siniskolon, near Melitene in eastern Cappadocia.
