FOLOE (Mountain) ILIA
Mountain in Arcadia, Herakles entertained by the centaur Pholus at.



Pholoe, an Arcadian mountain, is also situated above Olympia, and very close to it, so that its foothills are in Pisatis. Both the whole of Pisatis and most parts of Triphylia border on Arcadia; and on this account most of the Pylian districts mentioned in the Catalogue are thought to be Arcadian; the well-informed, however, deny this, for they say that the Erymanthus, one of the rivers that empty into the Alpheius, forms a boundary of Arcadia and that the districts in question are situated outside that river.(8.3.32)
At the present time the whole of the seaboard that lies between the countries of the Achaeans and the Messenians, and extends inland to the Arcadian districts of Pholoe, of the Azanes, and of the Parrhasians, is called the Eleian country.(8.3.1)



LASSION (Ancient city) ILIA
Not long after this the Eleans seized Lasion, which in ancient times had been theirs, but at present belonged to the Arcadian League
