Some scholars think Taricheae was also known as Magdala already in Roman times, but there is no evidence for this. The identification relies on conflating different rabbinic “Magdalas” and suggesting Taricheae had an unattested different name. See, e.g., Richard Bauckham, ed., Magdala of Galilee: A Jewish City in the Hellenistic and Roman Period (Waco, TX: Baylor Univ. Press, 2018), pp. 345–361; Uzi Leibner, Settlements and History in Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine Galilee, Texts and Studies in Ancient Judaism 127 (Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2009), pp. 214–237.
