SORA (Σῶρα, Ptol. 7.1.68), a town in the southern part of India, between M. Bettigo and Adeisathron. It was the capital of a nomad race [p. 2.1023]called Sorae (Ptol. l.c.), and the royal residence of a king named Arcates. The people are evidently the same as the Surae of Pliny (6.20. s. 23). Lassen places them in the mountains above Madras (see map).
