AEPEIA

AEPEIA (Αἴπεια: Eth. Αἰπεάτης).


1.

One of the seven Messenian towns, offered by Agamemnon to Achilles, is supposed by Strabo to be the same as Thuria, and by Pausanias the same as Corone. (Hom. Il. 9.152; Strab. p. 360; Paus. 4.34.5.)


2.

A town in Cyprus, situated on a mountain, the ruler of which is said to have removed to the plain, upon the advice of Solon, and to have named the new town Soli in honour of the Athenian. There is still a place, called Epe, upon the mountain above the ruins of Soli. (Plut. Sol. 26; Steph. B. sub voce Engel, Kypros, vol. i. p. 75.)
