Maeandropolis or Maiandroupolis (Ancient Greek: Μαιανδρούπολις), also known as Maeandrus or Maiandros (Μαίανδρος), was a town of ancient Ionia in the territory of Magnesia on the Maeander.[1] Its name reflects association with the Maeander River, on which it was situated.

Its site is tentatively located near Söke, Asiatic Turkey.[2][3]
