METHYMNA

METHYMNA (Μηθύμνη), a city in Crete, near Rhocca, which Aelian (Ael. NA 14.20) mentions in connection with a curious story respecting a remedy for hydrophobia discovered by a Cretan fisherman. Mr. Pashley (Trav. vol. ii. p. 40) considers that the remains near the chapel of Hághios Geórghios, by Nopía, on the extreme eastern edge of the plain of Kísamo-kastéli, represent Methymna.
