PIALA (Πίαλα or Πιάδδα, Ptol. 6.16.6), a town of Serica, from which the people Pialae (Πιάλαι or Πιάδδαι), dwelling as far as the river Oechardus, derived their name. (Ptol. 6.16.4.) In some MSS. of Pliny (6.17. s. 19) the Pialae are mentioned as a people in Scythia intra Imaum; but Sillig reads Psacae.
