a city of Asia Minor on the coast of Mysia, which in early times was called AEolis. The ship in which Paul embarked at Caesarea belonged to this city (Acts 27:2). He was conveyed in it only to Myra, in Lycia, whence he sailed in an Alexandrian ship to Italy. It was a rare thing for a ship to sail from any port of Palestine direct for Italy. It still bears the name Adramyti, and is a place of some traffic.
They took their passage at first in a ship of adramyttium, which was probably sailing from Csarea to lie up for the winter.
It is distant from adramyttium 180 stadia towards the north.
Close to it is adramyttium, a city founded by a colony of Athenians, with a harbour, and a station for vessels.
Astyra also, the village near adramyttium, is said to belong to Mysia.
These however are situated low down, and approach nearer the sea-coast at adramyttium.
One is situated at the distance of 60 stadia from adramyttium on one side, and the other 88 stadia on the other side.
