ΜΑΓΝΗΣΙΑ (Αρχαία περιοχή) ΘΕΣΣΑΛΙΑ
  Magnesia, inhabited by the Magnets (Magnetes), was the long and narrow slip of country between Mts. Ossa and Pelion on the W. and the sea on the E., and extending from the mouth of the Peneius on the N. to the Pagasaean gulf on the S. The Magnetes were members of the Amphictyonic league, and were settled in this district in the Homeric times. (Il. ii. 756.) The Thessalian Magnetes are said to have founded the Asiatic cities of Magnesia on Mt. Sipylus and of Magnesia on the river Maeander. (Aristot. ap. Athen. iv. p. 173; Conon, 29; Strab. xiv. p. 647).
