HYLIAS (Ὑλίας), a river on the E. coast of Bruttium, mentioned only by Thucydides (7.35), from whom we learn that it was situated between Thurii and Crotona, and apparently formed the northern boundary of the territory of the latter city. It is supposed by Swinburne to be the Acquanile, while Romanelli would identify it with the Calonato, little more than a mile further W.: the Fiumenicà, a more considerable stream, about 10 miles nearer Crotona, has perhaps a better claim than either. (Swinburne, Trav. vol. i. p. 309; Romanelli, vol. i. p. 221.)
