Translated headword: Nakoleia, Nacolia
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A place-name.[1]
It should be noted[2] that this Phrygian city is commonly derived from the nymph Nakole; whence also Nakolaion, the same [city]; just as nymphaion from nymph.[3] The ethnic designation [of a citizen from there] is Nakoleus, similar to Seleuceus. Neuter [plural] Nakoleia is also encountered.
Greek Original:
Νακώλεια: ὄνομα τόπου. ἰστέον δέ, ὅτι κοινῶς μὲν τεθήλυνται ἡ Φρυγιακὴ αὕτη πόλις ἀπὸ Νακώλης νύμφης: ἐξ ἧς καὶ Νακώλαιον, ἡ αὐτή: ὡς ἀπὸ νύμφης νύμφαιον. ἐθνικὸν αὐτῆς Νακωλεύς, ὡς Σελευκεύς. εὕρηται δὲ καὶ οὐδετέρως τὰ Νακώλεια.

[2] This additional material comes from Stephanus of Byzantium s.v. and along with the subsequent entry nu 20 is absent from mss AFV.
[3] A nymphaion was a sanctuary to a nymph, as a heroon was a sanctuary to a hero.
