RHEI´MEA (Ῥειμέα, Böckh, Inscr. no. 4590), a town of Auranitis, as appears from an inscription found by Burckhardt (Travels, p. 69) at Deir-el-Leben, situated three-quarters of an hour from the modern village of Rîma-el-LuhAf, where there stands a building with a flat roof and three receptacles for the dead, with an inscription over the door. (Böckh, Inscr. 4587--4589 ; comp. Buckingham, Arab. Tribes, p. 256.)
