Eo’lian.
 
An Eolian harp. A box fitted with strings, like a fiddle. The strings, however, are not sounded by a bow, but by a current of air or wind passing over them.   1
       
“Awake, Eolian harp, awake,
And give to rapture all thy trembling strings.”
       
Gray: Progress of Poetry, lines 1, 2.
