A town of Thrace, near the mouth of the Nestus, which flowed through the town. It was
colonized by Timesius of Clazomenae about B.C. 656, and a second time by the inhabitants of

544. It was the birthplace of Democritus, Hecataeus, Protagoras, Anaxarchus, and other
distinguished men; but its inhabitants, notwithstanding, were accounted stupid, and Abderite
was a term of reproach. (See Juv.x. 50
; Mart.x. 25.
