CHATRAMIS (Χατραμίς), a country of Arabia Felix, mentioned by Dionysius Per. (957), and Eustathius (ad loc.) as adjacent on the south to Chaldamis, and opposite to the coast of Persia. It, therefore, corresponded with the modern district of Oman, at the SE. of the Arabian Peninsula, and is identified by Forster with Dar-Charamatah, and traced to Hadoram the Joctanite patriarch. (Gen. 10.27.) [CORODAMUM PROMONTORIUM.]
