Suidas s.v. Nakoleia (trans. Suda On Line) (Byzantine Greek lexicon C10th A.D.) :
"Nakoleia (Nacoleia): A place-name. It should be noted that this Phrygian city is commonly derived from the Nymphe Nakole (Nacole); whence also Nakolaion, the same [city]; just as Nymphaion [fountain-house] from Nymphe."
