(Ξουθία; Xouthía). Region (chôra) at Leontini, kingdom of a mythical ruler, Xuthus , still so called in the time of Diodorus  (5,8,2) (in Steph. Byz. s. v. Ξ. incorrectly listed as a city). The name of Sortino, 16 km to the south of modern Lentini, recorded from the 13th cent. onwards, may derive from X.
