PEDA´LIUM

PEDA´LIUM (Πηδάλιον), a promontory in the south-east of Caria, forming the southernmost point of the western coast of the Sinus Glaucus. (Pomp. Mela, 1.16; Plin. Nat. 5.29; Stadiasm. Mar. Magn. § § 228, 233, 234.) Strabo (xiv. p.651) gives to the same promontory the name of Artemisium, from a temple of Artemis, which stood upon it ; its modern name is Bokomadhi. (Leake, Asia Minor, p. 223, foil.)
