τὸν Ἀβαῖσι ναόν The site of Abae, not far N. of the modern village of Exarcho, was on a hill in the northwest of Phocis, between Lake Copais and Elateia, and near the frontier of the Opuntian Locrians. Hdt. 8.33 “ἔνθα ἦν ἱερὸν Ἀπόλλωνος πλούσιον, θησαυροῖσί τε καὶ ἀναθήμασι πολλοῖσι κατεσκευασμένον: ἦν δὲ καὶ τότε καὶ νῦν ἐστὶ χρηστήριον αὐτόθι: καὶ τοῦτο τὸ ἱερὸν συλήσαντες ἐνέπρησαν” （the Persians in 480 B.C.）. Hadrian built a small temple beside the ancient “ἱερόν,” Paus. 10.35.3.
