MYLAS or MYLE (Μύλας), a promontory on the coast of Cilicia, between cape Aphrodisias in the west and cape Sarpedon in the east. On or close to it was a small town of the same name (Plin. Nat. 5.22; Stadiasm. Mar. Mag. §§ 165, 166.) As the Stadiasmus calls Mylas a cape and chersonese, Leake (Asia Minor, p. 205) is inclined to identify it with cape Cavaliere, which answers exactly to that description.
