SCYLACE (Σκυλάκη), an ancient Pelasgian town of Mysia, on the coast of the Propontis, east of Cyzicus. (Steph. B. sub voce In this place and the neighbouring Placia, the Pelasgians, according to Herodotus (1.57), had preserved their ancient language down to his time. Scylax (p. 35) mentions only Placia, but Mela (1.19) and Pliny (5.40) speak of both as still existing. These towns seem never to have been of any importance, and to have decayed at an early period.
