CHALAEUM (Χάλαιον; in Ptol. 3.15.3, Χαλεώς: Eth. Χαλαῖος), town upon the coast of the Locri Ozolae, near the borders of Phocis. Leake places it at Larnáki. Pliny erroneously calls it a town of Phocis, and says that it was situated seven miles from Delphi: it is not improbable that he confounded it with Cirrha, which is about that distance from Delphi. (Thuc. 3.101; Hecataeus, ap. Steph. s. v.; Plin. Nat. 4.3. s. 4; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. ii. p. 594.)
