Soloi — A settlement in Cilicia
Soloi was an ancient city and port in Cilicia. It was a colony of Rhodes, founded c. 700 BC. It was destroyed in the 1st century BC, rebuilt by Pompey the Great, and named Pompeiopolis, not to be confused with the Pompeiopolis in Paphlagonia.

The word solecism is derived from Soli, since the dialect of Greek spoken there was considered by Athenians to be a corrupted form of Attic Greek.

Modern location: Viranşehir, Turkey
