Elone

  A town of Perrhaebia in Thessaly, mentioned by Homer along with Orthe and Oloosson, afterwards called Leimone (Aeimone), according to Strabo. The same writer says that it was in ruins in his time, and that it lay at the foot of Mt. Olympus, not far from the river Eurotas, which the poet calls, Titaresius. Leake places it at Selos, where there are said to be some ancient remains.
