Dictionary of Greek and Roman Geography/Abolla

ABOLLA (Άβολλα), a city of Sicily, mentioned only by Stephanos Byzantinus (s. v.), who affords no clue to its position, but it has been supposed, on account of the resemblance of the name, to have occupied the site of Avola, between Syracuse and Noto. A coin of this city has been published by D'Orville (Sicula, pt ii. tab. 20), but is of very uncertain authority. (Eckhel, vd. L p. 189; Castell Sicil. Vet. Num. p. 4.)̺[ E. H. B. ]
