A people.

Of north Africa. See e.g. Polybius 3.33.15, 16.23.6; Strabo 2.5.33, 17.3.15; mentioned also in Plutarch and Polyaenus.
This entry is repeated as mu 246. Perhaps [NF] because, besides the Masaisylioi, there was also a neighbouring tribe called the Maisylioi (Polybius 3.33.15, Strabo 2.5.33).
