（*Ku/das), appears to have been a common name at Gortyna in Crete.
It is written in various ways in MSS., but Cydas seems to be the most correct form. (See Drakenborch, ad Liv. 33.3, 44.13.)
William Smith. A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology. London. John Murray: printed by Spottiswoode and Co., New-Street Square and Parliament Street. In the article on Soranus, we find: "at this present time (1848)" and this date seems to reflect the dates of works cited. 1873 - probably the printing date.
