Mandane (Cilicia)

Mandane (Ancient Greek: Μανδάνη) was a town on the coast of ancient Cilicia, between Celenderis, and Cape Pisidium or Posidium (modern Kızıl Burun),[1] from which it was only 7 stadia distant.[2] William Smith conjectured it to be the same place as the Myanda or Mysanda mentioned by Pliny the Elder;[3] and if so, it must also be identical with the town of Myus (Μυούς) mentioned in the Periplus of Pseudo-Scylax between Nagidus and Celenderis.[4] Modern scholarship does not accept the identity.[5]

Mandane is located near Akyaka in Asiatic Turkey.[6][5]
