Elaia - A settlement in Aeolis also known as Elea
Elaia or Elaea was an ancient city of Aeolis, Asia, the port of Pergamum. It was located near the modern town of Zeytindağ.

According to Strabo, travellers who would reach Pergamum from the sea, would land at Elaea. One of the passages of Livy shows that there was a small hill (tumulus) near Elaea, and that the town was in a plain and walled.

Elaea was damaged by an earthquake in the reign of Trajan, at the same time that Pitane suffered.
