Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  Huettos: Eth. Huettios. A village of Boeotia, said to have been founded by the Argive Hyettus, contained in the time of Pausanias a temple of Asclepius, frequented by the sick for the cure of their diseases, where the deity continued to be worshipped in the form of a rude stone. Pausanias says that Olmones was situated 12 stadia to the left of Copae, and Hyettus 7 stadia from Olmones. Forchhammer places Olmones on the small island of Trelo-Yani in the lake Copais, and Hyettus at Struviki to the west of this island, where some ancient ruins are found on a small hill jutting out into the lake.
