Eth. CROMI or CROMNUS (Κρῶμοι, Paus. 8.3.4, 27.4, 34.6; Κρῶμνος,, Xen. Hell. 7.4.21; Κρῶμνα, Steph. B. sub voce a town of Arcadia on the frontiers of Messenia, the inhabitants of which were removed to Megalopolis, on the foundation of the latter city in B.C. 371. Its territory is called CROMITIS (Κρωμῖτις) by Pausanias (8.34.6). It is placed by Boblaye at Neockhório, but by Leake at Samará, a little westward of Londári, since the latter writer conceives it to have been on the route leading from Megalopolis to Carnasium, and not on the one leading to Messene. (Boblaye, Recherches, p. 169; Leake, Morea, vol. ii. pp. 44, 297, Peloponnesiaca, p. 234.)
