ELIONAS ĕl’ ĭ ō’ nəs (̓Ελιωναίς, ̓Ελιωνάς). A name applied to two men in the list of those who put away foreign wives at Ezra’s insistence (1 Esd 9:22 KJV ELIONAS; RSV ELIOENAI; 9:32). The names in the two verses apparently correspond to Elioenai (Ezra 10:22) and Eliezer (10:31).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

The name of two men who had married foreign wives ( 1Esdras 9:22,23), corresponding respectively to "Elioenai" and "Eliezer" in Ezr 10:22,31.
