 sanctuaries in Palestine in  the 4th c., and by the 6th the cult was
 widespread. >>

I don't know when Elijah became popular in Greece, but there a number of 
hills and lesser mountains in that country today which are named after him, 
although usually with the distinction of being a prophet and not a saint.
