Parauaea (Greek: Παραυαία) was an ancient Greek region in Epirus.[1] The area was incorporated into Macedon in 350 BC as part of Upper Macedonia.[2][3] The Thesprotian[4] tribe inhabiting it was called Parauaioi (Greek: Παραυαῖοι). Parauaei[5] under[6] king Oroedus (Greek: Ὄροιδος) and 1000 Orestai, entrusted to Oreoedus by Antiochus[disambiguation needed], their king, had joined the Spartans under Cnemus during the 3rd year of the Peloponnesian war. Rhianus[7] (3rd century BC) calls them a Thesprotian nation, and so does Stephanus of Byzantium quoting Rhianus. Their name, Parauaioi meant, those dwelling beside Aous, a river in Epirus.
