Magydus (in Greek Μάγυδος, Magydos) was an ancient settlement and bishopric on the coast of Pamphylia, Asia Minor. Its site was probably at modern Lara, where there are ruins of a small artificial harbour.
Magydus was a small town with no notable history, on the coast between Attaleia and Perga, mentioned occasionally by geographers of the Roman and Late Antiquity periods,and on numerous coins of the imperial era.
Magydus figures in the Notitiae episcopatuum until the 12th or 13th century. Five bishops are known: Aphrodisius, present at the First Nicene Council in 325; Macedo, at the Council of Chalcedon in 451; Conon, at the Second Council of Constantinople in 553; Platon at the Council of Constantinople (680 and 692); Marinus, at the Council of Nicaea in 787.
