Pylon. Telemachus, without his mother's knowlege, went to Pylos, to make inquiries respecting his father. There were three cities of this name in Peloponnesus. It is uncertain which of them belonged to Nestor; most are of opinion that his capital was situated between the others, to the south of the river Alpheus. The form Pylon is a Greek accusative.Neleïa arva; the same as Pylos; because there Neleus the father of Nestor reigned.
