or Chloia (Χλόεια or Χλοιά). A festival celebrated at Athens in honour of Demeter Chloé, or simply Chloé, whose temple stood near the Acropolis (Hesych. s. v. Χλοιά). It was solemnized in spring, on the sixth of Thargelion, when the blossoms began to appear (hence the names Χλόη and Χλόεια), with the sacrifice of a goat and much mirth and rejoicing.
