Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)

Halimous

(Halimous, Harpocrat.; Suid.; Steph.; Bekker, Anecd. i. p. 376; Schol. ad Aristoph. Av. 498), said to have been so called from ta halima, sea-weeds (Etym. M. s. v.), was situated on the coast between Phalerum and Aexone (Strab. ix. p. 398), at the distance of 35 stadia from the city (Dem. c. Eubulid. p. 1302), with temples of Demeter and Core (Paus. i. 31. ยง 1), and of Hercules. (Dem. pp. 1314, 1319.) Hence Leake places it at C. Kallimakhi, at the back of which rises a small but conspicuous hill, crowned with a church of St. Cosmas. Halimus was the demus of Thucydides the historian.
