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.
