Magydus (Magudos: Eth. Magudeus; called Masedos by Scylax, p. 39),
a town of Pamphylia, on the coast between Attaleia and Perge, and subsequently
of episcopal rank, is probably the Mygdale (Mugdale), of the Stadiasmus. There
are numerous imperial coins of Magydus, hearing the epigraph Magudeon. Leake identities
it with Laara. (Ptol. v. 5. § 2; Hierocl. p. 679; Stadiasms. §§ 201, 202; Leake,
Asia Minor, p. 194 Cramer, Asia Minor, vol. ii. p. 278.)
