Ladoceia (ta Ladokeia), a place in Arcadia, in the district Maenalia, and, after the building of Megalopolis, a suburb of that city, was situated upon the road from the latter to Pallantium and Tegea. Here a battle was fought between the Mantineians and Tegeatae, B.C. 423, and between the Achaeans and Cleomenes, B.C. 226. Thucydides calls it Laodicium (Laodikion) in Oresthis. (Paus. viii. 44. § 1; Thuc. iv. 134; Pol. ii. 51, 55.)
