Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  Pedasos. A small town of Mysia, on the river Satnioeis, which is mentioned by Homer (Il. vi. 35, xx. 92, xxi. 87), but was deserted in the time of Strabo (xiii. p. 605), who (p. 584) mentions it among the towns of the Leleges, which were destroyed by Achilles. (Comp. Steph. B. s. v. Pedasa. Pliny (v. 32) imagines that Pedasus was the same place as that which subsequently bore the name of Adramyttium; but as Homer distinctly places it on the river Satnioeis, the supposition is impossible.
