CADMUS (Κάδμος), a mountain of Phrygia Magna (Strab. p. 578), which the Turks call Baba Dagh: the sides are well wooded. A river Cadmus flowed from the mountain, probably the Gieuk Bonar, which flows into the Lycus, a tributary of the Maeander. (Hamilton, Researches, &c., vol. i. p. 513.) The range of Cadmus forms the southern boundary of the basin of the Maeander in these parts. Pliny's remark about it (5.29) does not help us. Ptolemy (5.2) puts it in the latitude of Mycale, which is tolerably correct.
