DIONYSIADES (Διονυσιάδες, Diod. 5.75), small islands which lie off the coast of Crete to the NE. The position is fixed by the Coast-describer at 120 stadia from Sammonium (Stadiasm.) The Peutinger Table places at the E. of the N. extremity of Crete, an island with the unfinished name of Dion. . . . This must be one of this group of islands, which now are called Dhionysiádhes. See the map in Pashley's Travels. (Höck, Kreta, vol. i. pp. 428, 439.)
