A town in Aetolia, near New Pleuron, destroyed by the Aetolians at an early period.


A town in Achaia, between Patrae and Dyme. The goat Amalthaea, which suckled the infant Zeus, is called Olenia capella by the poets, either because the goat was supposed to have been born near the town of Olenus, and to have been subsequently transferred to Crete, or because the nymph Amalthaea, to whom the goat belonged, was the daughter of Olenus.
