, or MALOEA, a town of southern Perrhaebia in Thessaly, perhaps represented in name by Mológhusta,
which Leake conjectures to be a corruption of Malloea, with the addition of Augusta.
But as there are no remains of antiquity at Mológhusta,
Leake supposes Malloea to have occupied a height; on the opposite side of the river, where are some vestiges of ancient walls. (Liv. 31.41
; Leake, Northern Greece,
vol. iv. p. 311.)
