Χολλείδην ‘Of Χολλεῖδαι’ (Or. 35 § 20), a deme of the tribe Leontis, probably situated south of Hymettus and west of Mons Anhydrus, or Hymettus minor (Leake's Athens II 57 and Wordsworth's Athens and Attica, chap. xxv).—τουτονὶ implies that Euxitheus was present in court; the other, Midias (probably the same as the subject of the wellknown oration of Dem.), was absent.—τῆς οἰκίας, Ariston's home.
