PEDO´NIA

PEDO´NIA (Πηδωνία), a town on the coast of Marmarica, before which lay an island of the same name. (Ptol. 4.5. § § 32, 75.) This island is also mentioned by Strabo, but in some editions under the name of Sidonia (xvii. p. 799). We may, however, conclude from Ptolemy that Pedonia is the correct reading. (See Groskurd's Strabo, vol iii. p. 357.)
