LAGINA

LAGINA (τὰ Λάγινα), a place in the territory of Stratoniceia, in Caria, contained a most splendid temple of Hecate, at which every year great festivals were celebrated. (Strab. xiv. p.660.) Tacitus (Tac. Ann. 3.62), when speaking of the worship of Trivia among the Stratoniceians, evidently means Hecate. The name of Lagina is still preserved in the village of Lakena, not far from the sources of the Tshina. Laginia, mentioned by Steph. B. sub voce as a πολίχνιον Καρίας, seems to be the same as the Lagina of Strabo.
