Map of the Kingdom of Macedon with Elimiotis located in the south-western districts of the kingdom

Elimiotis or Elimeia (Ancient Greek: Ἐλιμιώτις or Ἐλιμία or Ἐλίμεια) was a region of Upper Macedonia that was located along the Haliacmon river. The capital of Elimiotis was Aiani, located in the modern municipality of Kozani, Western Macedonia. It was bordered by Orestis and Eordaea in the north, Pieria in the east, Perrhaebia/Thessaly in the south and Parauaea in the west, and was inhabited by the Greek tribe of Elimiotes (Ancient Greek: Ἐλιμιῶται). In earlier times, it was independent and the Derdas family ruled the local kingdom from its capital Aiane. However, later it lost its independence and by 355 BC, Elimiotis was part of the kingdom of Macedon.
