Elaea or Elaia (Greek: Ελαία), also Elaias Limen is an ancient harbor town at the mouth of the Acheron river of Epirus. The town is mentioned by both Scylax and Ptolemy. Thucydides calls the surrounding district Elaeatis (Greek: Ελαιατις) further evidencing the town. The archaeological site of Elaea is quite inland, at 39° 26' 23" N, 20° 33' 0" E.
