Koloe is a Greek name appearing in the Periplus Maris Erythrae. There are multiple candidates for its identification, as noted by Potts in the directory to BAtlas: Qohaito or Matara. There are place resources in draft for both of these archaeological sites. Once they are added, I think we should retract this place record in favor of those.
