A proper name; [the one] which [is] also Neileus in common dialect[1] or Neileus in Aeolic.[2] A colony of his is said [to have gone] into Asia.[3] From, they say, the [word] νέος ['new'] and the word λεώς ['people'] comes Neoleos and by crasis of e and o to the diphthong ei [comes] Neileos, as in Kleosthenes, Kleisthenes, Pleosthenes, Pleisthenes, δέον , δεῖν , πλέον , πλεῖν . Or, they say, from Neleus, genitive Neleos has come Neileos by ascent of the genitive to the nominative and by Boiotian change of the eta to the diphthong ei produced, as in Aeolic with proparoxytonesis.
