(ta Hupana) and Hypane (Hupane). A town in Elis belonging to the so-called Pentapolis.

Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  Hypana (Hupana: Eth. Hupaneus), a town in the interior of Triphylia in Elis, which surrendered to Philip V. in the Social War. Its inhabitants had been transferred to Elis when Strabo wrote. Hypana is mentioned along with Typaneae. Both these towns must have been situated in the mountains of Triphylia, but their site is uncertain. Leake places Hypana at Alvena in the heights above the maritime plain of Lepreum; but Boblaye more to the north, at Mundritza, in the hills above Samicum. (Strab. viii. p. 343; Polyb. iv. 77, 79; Steph. B. s. v.; Ptol. iii. 16. ยง 18, who calls it Hupaneia; Leake, Morea, vol. ii. p. 85; Boblaye, Recherches, &c. p. 133; Curtius, Peloponnesos, vol. ii. p. 89.)
