Aeolis (Aiolis) or Aeolia (Aiolia) was an area in west and northwest Asia Minor, mostly along the coast and offshore islands (particularly Lesbos), where the Aeolian Greek city-states were located. Aeolis incorporated the southern parts of Mysia and much of the coast of Lydia. In early times, their twelve most important cities were independent, and formed a league: Cyme (also called Phriconis ), Larissae , Neonteichos , Temnus , Cilla , Notium , Aegiroessa , Pitane , Aegeaeae , Myrina , Gryneia , and Smyrna (Herodotus, 1.149).
