PAMPHY´LIUM MARE, PAMPHY´LIUS SINUS (Παμφύλιον πέλαγος or Παμφύλιος κόλπος), a large and deep bay formed by the curved form of the coasts of Lycia, Pamphylia, and Cilicia, beginning in the west at the Chelidonian promontory, and terminating in the east at Cape Anemurium. The distance from the Chelidonian cape to Olbia is stated by Strabo to be 367 stadia. (Strab. ii. pp. 121, 125, xiv. p. 666 ; Agathem. 1.3, 2.14; Stobaeus, i. p. 656; Plin. Nat. 5.26, 35; Flor. 3.6.) This sea is now called the bay of Adalia.
