CALE´LA (Καλήλη), a place in Apulia, mentioned only by Polybins (3.101), who tells us that Minucius encamped there, when Hannibal had established himself at Gerunium. He calls it ἄκρα, by which he probably means a “castellum,” or small fortified town, and tells us it was in the territory of Larinum; but its exact position cannot be ascertained. It appears from his narrative to have been somewhat more than 16 stadia from Gerunium.
