Palaemyndus or Palaia Myndos (Ancient Greek: Παλαιάμυνδος or Παλαιὰ Μύνδος) was a town of ancient Caria, near Myndus, which was its successor settlement.[1] Palaemyndus seems to have been the ancient place of the Carians which became deserted after the establishment of the Dorian Myndus.[2]

Its site is located near Bozdağ, Asiatic Turkey.[3][4]
