STRONGS NT 1638: ἐλαιῶν

ἐλαιῶν, Ἐλαιῶνος, (the ending ὤν in derivative nouns indicating a place set with trees of the kind designated by the primitive, as δαφνων, ἰτεων, δρυμῶν κέδρων, cf. Alexander Buttmann (1873) Ausf. Spr. ii., p. 422ff: Kühner, i., p. 711; (Jelf, § 335 d.)); an olive-orchard, a place planted with olive trees, i. e. the Mount of Olives (A. V. Olivet) (see ἐλαία, 1): Acts 1:12 (διά τοῦ Ἐλαιῶνος ὄρους, Josephus, Antiquities 7, 9, 2). In Luke 19:29; Luke 21:37 also we should write τό ὄρος τό καλούμενον ἐλαιῶν (so L T Tr (but WH with R G ἐλααιων)); likewise in Josephus, Antiquities 20, 8, 6 πρός ὄρος τό προσαγορευόμενον ἐλαιῶν; b. j. 2, 13, 5 and 5, 2, 3 εἰς (κατά) ἐλαιῶν καλούμενον ὄρος; 6, 2, 8 κατά τό ἐλαιῶν ὄρος; (but in Josephus the passages cited; Bekker editions, ἐλαιῶν). Cf. Fritzsche on Mark, p. 794f; Buttmann, 22 (19f); Winers Grammar, 182 (171) n. 1; (but see WHs Appendix, p. 158b). (The Sept. sometimes render זַיִת freely by ἐλαιῶν, as Exodus 23:11; Deuteronomy 6:11; 1 Samuel 8:14, etc.; not found in Greek writings.)


From elaia; an olive-orchard, i.e. (specially) the Mount of Olives -- Olivet.
