(ta Hupana) and Hypane (Hupane). A town in Elis belonging to the so-called Pentapolis.
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. § 18, who calls it Hupaneia; Leake, Morea, vol. ii. p. 85; Boblaye, Recherches,
&c. p. 133; Curtius, Peloponnesos, vol. ii. p. 89.)
