Eth. Olizonios. An ancient town of Magnesia in Thessaly, mentioned
by Homer, who gives it the epithet of rugged. (Hom. Il. ii. 717.) It possessed
a harbour (Scylax, p. 25); and as it was opposite Artemisium in Euboea (Plut.
Them. 8), it is placed by Leake on the isthmus connecting the peninsula of Trikhiri
with the rest of Magnesia.
