MAENACA (Μαινάκη), a Greek city on the S. coast of Hispania Baetica, the most westerly colony of the Phocaeans. (Strab. iii. p.156; Scymn. 145, et seq.) In Strabo's time it had been destroyed; but the ruins were still visible. He refutes the error of those who confounded it with MALACA which was not a Greek, but a Phoenician city, and lay further to the W.; but this error is repeated by Avienus (Or. Marit. 426, et seq.). The place seems to be the Μάκη of Stephanus.
