HI´PPOLA (Ἱππόλα: Eth. Ἱππολαΐτης, fern Ἱππολαῖτις), a town of Laconia, a little north-west of the promontory of Taenarum, in ruins in the time of Pausanias. It contained a temple of Athena Hippolaitis. It stood either at Kipúla, which is apparently a corruption of the ancient name, or at the ruins called κάστρον τῆς ὡραίας on the highest point of the peninsula of Kavo Grosso. (Leake, More, vol. i. p. 287, Peloponnesiaca, p. 175; Boblaye, Recherches, &c. p. 91; Curtius, Peloponnesos, vol. ii. p. 282.)
