PAGALA (τὰ Παγάλα, Arrian, Indic. 100.23,) a place on the coast of Gedrosia, to which the fleet of Nearchus came after leaving the river Arabis. It seems probable that it is the same as a place called Segada or Pegala by Philostratus, and which was also in the country of the Oritae (Vit. Apoll. 3.54). It cannot be identified with any existing spot.
