Agryle (Agrule, Araule, Agroile, Steph.; Harpocrat.; Suid.; Hesych.; Zonar.; Bekker, Anecd. i. p. 332), was the name of two demi, an upper and a lower Agryle. They lay immediately south of the stadium in the city. (Harpocrat. s. v. Apdettos.) It is not improbable that the district of Agrae in the city belonged to one of these demi. [See p. 302, b.]

Agrae (Agrai), was situated south of the Ilissus, and in the SE. of the city. Respecting its site, see p. 300, b. It does not appear to have been a separate demus, and was perhaps included in the demus of Agryle, which was situated south of it.
At first it belonged to the Erechteid tribe. From 306 BC it belonged to the Antigonis tribe and since 200 BC to the Attalis tribe. It was located at Ardettus and up to Hymettus.
