This neighborhood or district association is likely named after the god Helios.

Architimos son of Hagesipolis, who served as priest of Athena Lindia, Zeus Polieus (“of the City”), and Artemis Kekoia and as chief-sacrificer has been crowned with a gold crown by the neighborhood (diagonia) of the Heliotadians of Astykronteians, Stasioneians, and Autostheneians.  This is dedicated to the gods.
