γῆς Ἀπίας, a name for the Peloponnesus (Aesch. Ag. 256), from the mythical king “Ἆπις”, who crossed over from Naupactus, “"before Pelops had come to Olympia,"” as Paus. says, and purged the land of monsters. The Sicyon myth made him son of Telchin (Paus. 2.5.7); Aesch. calls him “ἰατρόμαντις παῖς Ἀπόλλωνος” (Suppl. 263). Distinguish 1685 “ἀπίαν γᾶν”, “"a far land"” (“ἀπό”).
