PANORMUS Πάνορμος: Eth. Πανορμίτης).


1.

A harbour of Achaia, 15 stadia E. of the promontory of Rhium. The bay is now called Tekiéh from a tekiéh or tomb of a Turkish saint, which formerly stood upon it. (Paus. 7.22.10; Thuc. 2.86; Plb. 5.1.02; Plin. Nat. 4.5 ; Leake, Morea, vol. iii. p. 195.)


2.

A harbour on the east coast of Attica. [Vol. I. p. 331b.]

A harbour in the district Chaonia in Epeirus, situated nearly midway between Oricum and Onchesmus. (Ptol. 3.14.2.) Strabo describes it as a great harbour in the midst of the Ceraunian mountains (vii. p. 324.) It is now called Palérimo. It must be distinguished from Panormus, the harbour of Oricum (Strab. vii. p.316), now Porto Raguseo. (Leake, Northern Greece, vol. i. pp. 3, 70.)

A harbour in the island of Cephallenia. [CEPHALLENIA]
