  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Dalmanutha 
  a  place  on  the  west  of  the  Sea  of  Galilee,  mentioned  only  in 
  Mark  8:10.  In  the  parallel  passage  it  is  said  that  Christ  came 
  "into  the  borders  of  Magdala"  (Matt.  15:39).  It  is  plain,  then, 
  that  Dalmanutha  was  near  Magdala,  which  was  probably  the  Greek 
  name  of  one  of  the  many  Migdols  (i.e.,  watch-towers)  on  the 
  western  side  of  the  lake  of  Gennesaret.  It  has  been  identified 
  in  the  ruins  of  a  village  about  a  mile  from  Magdala,  in  the 
  little  open  valley  of  'Ain-el-Barideh,  "the  cold  fountain," 
  called  el-Mejdel,  possibly  the  "Migdal-el"  of  Josh.  19:38.
