ALIARTOS (Ancient city) VIOTIA
City of Boeotia, burned by Medes, its roofless and half-burnt temples, Tolmides defeated at H., attacked by Lacedaemonians under Lysander, land of Haliartus formerly belonged to Athamas.



Haliartus is no longer in existence, having been razed to the ground in the war against Perseus; and the country is held by the Athenians, a gift from the Romans. It was situated in a narrow place, between the mountain situated above it and Lake Copais, near the Permessus and Olmeius Rivers and the marsh that produces the flute reed (Strab. 9,2,30).
