MASTAURA (Μάσταυρα), a town in the north of Carla, at the foot of Mount Messogis, on the small river Chrysaoras, between Tralles and Tripolis. (Strab. xiv. p.650; Plin. Nat. 5.31; Steph. B. sub voce Hierocl. p. 659.) The town was not of any great repute, but is interesting from its extant coins, and from the fact that the ancient site is still marked by a village bearing the name Mastaura, near which a few ancient remains are found. (Hamilton, Researches, i. p. 531.)
