PYDNAE or PYDNA (Πύδναι), a small town on the coast of Lycia, between the river Xanthus and Cape Hieron. (Stadiasm. M. Magni, p. 221.) It is probably the same place as the one called by Ptolemy (5.3.5) Cydna, and which he places at the foot of Mount Cragus, where ruins of an ancient town were observed by Beaufort. (Leake, Asia Minor, p. 182.)
