Dictionary of Greek and Roman Geography/Attea

A'TTEA (Άττεα), a place on the sea coast of Mysia, which, if we follow the order of Strabo's enumeration (p. 607), lies between Heracleia and Atarneus. It has been conjectured that it is the same place which is named Attalia in the Table. Pliny (v. 30) mentions an Attalia in Mysia, but he places it in the interior; and he also mentions the Attalenses as belonging to the conventus of Pergamum. It seems, then, there is some confusion in the authorities about this Attalia; and the Lydian Attalia of Stephanus and this Attalia of Pliny may be the same place. [ G. L. ]
