IPPOLA (Ancient city) ITYLO
  Eth. Hippolaites, fern Hippolaitis. A town of Laconia, a little north-west of the promontory of Taenarum, in ruins in the time of Pausanias. It contained a temple of Athena Hippolaitis. It stood either at Kipula, which is apparently a corruption of the ancient name, or at the ruins called kastron tes horaias on the highest point of the peninsula of Kavo Grosso.
