SCOLLIS (Σκόλλις), a mountain between Elis and Achaia, now called Sandameriótiko, 3333 feet high, from which the river Larisus rises, that forms the boundary between Achaia and Elis. Strabo describes it as adjacent to Mount Lampeia, which was connected with the range of Erymanthus. (Strab. viii. p.341.) Strabo also identifies it with the “Olenian Rock” of Homer. (Il. 2.617; Strab. viii. p.387; Leake, Morea, vol. ii. pp. 184, 230; Peloponnesiaca, p. 203.)
