HALOTIA (Ἁλώτια). — A festival celebrated at Tegea, in the stadium, in remembrance of the capture of prisoners of war in a victory over the Lacedaemonians.1 It isº known to us from a lone passage of Pausanias.2 Schoemann and Hermann have put forth the idea that maybe Ἁλώτια was nothing but an Arcadian dialect form of Ἑλλώτια;3 the Hellotia wereº the great festival of Athena at Corinth.
