SALOE

SALOE (Σαλόη, Paus. 7.24.7), or SALE (Plin. Nat. 5.31), a small lake of Lydia at the foot of Mount Sipylus, on the site of Tantalis or Sipylas, the ancient capital of Maeonia, which had probably perished during an earthquake. (Strab. i. p.58, xii. p. 579.) The lake was surrounded by a marsh; and the Phyrites, which flowed into it as a brook, issued at the other side as a river of some importance.
