MATA´LIA (Μταλία, Ptol. 3.17.4), a town in Crete near the headland of MATALA (Μάταλα, Stadiasm.), and probably the same place as the naval arsenal of Gortyna, METALLUM (Μέταλλον, Strab. x. p.479), as it appears in our copies of Strabo, but incorrectly. (Comp. Groskurd, ad loc.) The modern name in Mr. Pashley's map is Mátala. (Höck, Kreta, vol. i. pp. 399, 435 Mus. Class. Antiq. vol. ii. p. 287.)
