PANELLE′NIA (πανελλήνια), a festival, or perhaps rather a panegyris of all the Greeks, which seems to have been instituted by the emperor Hadrian, with the well-meant but impracticable view of reviving a national spirit among the Greeks (Philostr. Vit. Soph. II.1.5; Böckh, Corp. Inscrip. I p789, II p580).
