SUIA (Σΰα, Steph. B. sub voce: Eth.Συϊάτης, Eth.Συϊεύς; Σύβα, Eth. Stadiasm, § § 331, 332), the harbour of Elyrus in Crete, 50 stadia to the W. of Poecilassus, situated on a plain. It probably existed as late as the time of Hierocles, though now entirely uninhabited. Mr. Pashley (Travels, vol. ii. p. 100) found remains of the city walls as well as other public buildings, but not more ancient than the time of the Roman empire. Several tombs exist resembling those of Hághio Kýrko; an aqueduct is also remaining.
