MODU´RA (Μόδουρα, Ptol. 7.1.89.) There are two places of this name mentioned in the accounts of ancient India: one described by Ptolemy (l.c.) as βασίλειον Πανδίονος, the Palace of King Pandion; and the other as Μόδουρα τῶν Θεῶν, the Sacred Modoura (7.1.50). The former of these towns was in the southern part of Hindostân, and is most probably the present ruined city, Madura; the second was in the land of the Caspeiraei in the NW. part of India, either on the frontier or in the Panjáb. Its exact position cannot now be determined.
