Ancient literary sources (1)



Buprasium now appears to have been a territory of the Eleian country, having in it a settlement of the same name, which was also a part of Elis .. It seems likely that at one time there was a considerable settlement by the name of Buprasium in the Eleian country which is no longer in existence (indeed, only that territory which is on the road that leads to Dyme from the present city of Elis is now so called); and one might suppose that at that time Buprasium had a certain preeminence as compared with Elis, just as the Epeians had in comparison with the Eleians; but later on the people were called Eleians instead of Epeians.(8.3.8-10, 8.3.28, 8.3.32).
