Eth. CADI (Κάδοι: Eth. Καδηνός), a city of Mysia according to Stephanus (s. v. Κάδοι). Strabo (p. 576) mentions Cadi with Azani as a city of Phrygia Epictetius, but he adds that some assign it to Mysia Cadi is south of Azani, or Tchavdou-Hissar, and a traveller going from Azani to Cadi crosses the water-shed between the basin of the Rhyndacus and the basin of the Hermus. A town now called Kedus or Ghiediz, stands on a small stream, the Ghiediz Chai, which flows into the Hermus; but it is not the chief branch of the Hermus, though the Turks give the name of Ghiediz Chai to the Hermus nearer the sea. Hamilton says (Researches, &c., vol. i. p. 108) that hardly any ancient remains exist at Ghiediz, a place which he visited, but he heard of remains at a place higher up the Hermus, named Ghieukler, near the foot of Morad Dagh, Mons Dindymene, which contains the source of the Hermus. The coins of Cadi have not the Ethnic name Καδηνων, as Stephanus gives it, but Καδοηνων. The river Hermus is represented on them, but this will not prove, as Hamilton correctly observes, that the Ghiediz Chai is the Hermus, but only that Cadi was not far from the Hermus. Cadi may be the place which Propertius (4.6, 8) calls “Mygdonii Cadi.” It was afterwards an episcopal see.
