GAZELON or GADILON (Γαδιλών), a town in the north-west of Pontus, in a fertile plain between the river Halys and Amisus. (Strab. 12.547; Plin. Nat. 6.2.)

From this town the whole district received the name of Gadilonitis, which is probably the right form, which must, perhaps, be restored in two passages of Strabo, in one of which (p. 553) the common reading is Γαλαουῖτις, and in the other (p. 560) Γαζηλωτός.
