Ceos, now Zea orTzia, an island of the AEgean, lying 14 miles from the coast of Attica, and forming one of the group of the Cyclades. It is about 13 miles long and 8 broad, and rises gradually toward the central point, Mount Elias, 1,860 ft. in height. The chief products of the island are citrons, lemons, olives, wine, and honey. Of the four towns which the island anciently possessed the only one now of importance is Zea, the capital, whose population forms more than half of the whole population of the islands. The Cean laws were of old proverbial for their excellence.
