From Stephanus of Byzantium s.v., citing Rhianus, Lycophron, and Aristophanes. See also Herodotus 6.74.1-2 (web address 1); Pausanias 8.17.6 (web address 2). (Confusingly, there were two small communities of this name in Arkadia: for the other one see Paus. 8.27.4, web address 3. By adding "the one near Elis" - a phrase not in Steph. Byz. - the lexicographer may be reflecting this fact, consciously or unconsciously.)
cf. nu 551.
