HERACLEIA an ancient place of Pisatis in Elis, but a village in the time of Pausanias, was distant 40 or 50 stadia from Olympia. It contained medicinal waters issuing from a fountain sacred to the Ionic nymphs, and flowing into the neighbouring stream called Cytherus or Cytherius, which is the brook near the modern village of Bruma. (Strab. viii. p.356; Paus. 6.22.7; Boblaye, Recherches, &c. p. 129; Curtius, Peloponnesos, vol. ii. p. 72.)
