Halos — A settlement in Thessaly also known as Halus
Halos or Halus was a settlement in Ancient Greece, in the region of Phthiotis.

In Greek mythology Halos and Orchomenus are variously recorded as starting point of Phrixos' and Helle's flight to Colchis.

The chief god of Halos was Zeus Laphystios (the Devourer), a storm god whose epithet may mean that he received human sacrifices in early times.
