According to a fragment of Favorinus quoted by Stephanus of Byzantium, Korydela was one of two islets that constituted the "Chelidoniai petrai". These "rocks" are thought to be identifiable with the largest two of several islets that lie off modern Cape Gelidonya on the south coast of Anatolia (the modern Beş Adalar = Five Islands). Korydela is identified with the closed of the group to the cape, modern Meşe Adası.
