Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)

Hyle, Hyaea

Hyle, a town in Locris Ozolis, mentioned by Stephanus B. (s. v. Hule), from which the river Hylaethus perhaps derived its name. Thucydides (iii. 101) speaks of a Locrian people named HYAEI (Huaioi), which name Leake supposes to be a corruption of Hylaei; but the objection to this hypothesis is that Stephanus, who mentions Hyle as a Locrian town, also speaks of Hyaea as a Locrian town, giving Hyaeus as their ethnic name, whence we may infer that he distinguished between the two towns. (Steph. B. s. v. Huaia; comp. Leake, Northern Greece, vol. ii.)
