Μαγαδάν, see the following word.

STRONGS NT 3093: Μαγδαλά Μαγδαλά, a place on the western shore of the Lake of Galilee, about three miles distant from Tiberius toward the north; according to the not improbable conjecture of Gesenius (Thesaurus, i., p. 267) identical with מִגְדַל־אֵל (i. e. tower of God), a fortified city of the tribe of Naphtali (Joshua 19:38); in the Jerus. Talmud מגדל (Magdal or Migdal); now Medschel or Medjdel, a wretched Mohammedan village with the ruins of an ancient tower (see Winers RWB, under the word; Robinson, Palest. ii., p. 396f; Arnold in Herzog viii., p. 661; Kneucker in Schenkel 4:p. 84; (Hackett in B. D., under the word; Edersheim, Jesus the Messiah, i., 571f)): Matthew 15:39 R G, with the variant reading (adopted by L T Tr WH (cf. WH's Appendix, p. 160)) Μαγαδάν, Vulg. Magedan (Syriac wdGM []); if either of these forms was the one used by the Evangelist it could very easily have been changed by the copyists into the more familiar name Μαγδαλά.
