The Definition of the word Adramyttium
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.
