 Magdala
    a tower, a town in Galilee, mentioned only in Matt. 15:39. In
    the parallel passage in Mark 8:10 this place is called
    Dalmanutha. It was the birthplace of Mary called the Magdalen,
    or Mary Magdalene. It was on the west shore of the Lake of
    Tiberias, and is now probably the small obscure village called
    el-Mejdel, about 3 miles north-west of Tiberias. In the Talmud
    this city is called "the city of colour," and a particular
    district of it was called "the tower of dyers." The indigo plant
    was much cultivated here.
