OE´NOE (Οἰνόη: Eth.Οἰνοαῖος, Eth. Οἰναῖος).


An Attic demus near Marathon. [MARATHON]


An Attic demus near Eleutherae, upon the confines of Boeotia. [Vol. I. p. 329, No. 43.]


A fortress in the territory of Corinth. [Vol. I. p. 685b.]


Or OENE (Οἴνη, Steph. B. sub voce a small town in the Argeia, west of Argos, on the left bank of the river Charadrus, and on the southern (the Prinus) of the two roads leading from Argos to Mantineia. Above the town was the mountain Artemisium (Malevós), with a temple of Artemis on the summit, worshipped by the inhabitants of Oenoe under the name of Oenoatis (Οἰνωᾶτις). The town was named by Diomedes after his grandfather Oeneus, who died here. In the neighbourhood of this town the Athenians and Argives gained a victory over the Lacedaemonians. (Paus. 2.15.2, 1.15.1, 10.10.4; Apollod. 1.8.6; Steph. B. sub voce Leake originally placed Oenoe near the left bank of the Charadrus; but in his later work he has changed his opinion, and supposes it to have stood near the right bank of the Inachus. His original supposition, however, seems to be the correct one; since there can be little doubt that Ross has rightly described the course of the two roads leading from Argos to Mantineia. (Leake, Morea, vol. ii. p. 413, Pelopon. p. 266; Ross, Reisen im Peloponnes, p. 133.)


Or BOEONOA, a town of Elis, near the Homeric Ephyra. (Strab. viii. p.338.) [Vol. I. p. 839b.]
