Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  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.)
