Oinoi (Greek: Οινόη) is a village and a former community in the northern part of West Attica, Greece. The village was named Mazi (Greek: Μάζι) until 1919.[2] Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Mandra-Eidyllia, of which it is a municipal unit.[3] The municipal unit has an area of 14.431 km2.[4]

The ancient site Oenoe is located about 3 km east of the modern settlement of Oinoi. Oinoi is surrounded by forested mountains, including Pateras (1,131 m (3,711 ft)) and Pastra (1,016 m (3,333 ft)). There are farmlands in the valley areas. Oinoi is located 7 km east of Vilia, 18 km northwest of Eleusis, 19 km southeast of Thebes and 34 km (21 mi) northwest of Athens city centre.

Etymology

The name "Oinoi" has been known since antiquity, with Pausanias retelling one version, from the woman Oinoi, sister of the Epoch. (Pausanias, At. Κ. Λγ '§7).

History

Mazi had been planned to be served by a railway station as early as in 1883 in a preliminary study by the French Mission for the planned Piraeus - Demerli - Border railway.[5]
