CHIMAERA (Χίμαιρα: Khimára), a town of Epeirus in the district Chaonia, now gives its name to the Acroceraunian mountains, at the foot of which it stands. At Khimára may be seen several pieces of Hellenic work, which serve as foundations to some of the modern houses. (Plin. Nat. 4.1; Procop. de Aedif. 4.4; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. i. pp. 7, 82, 89, seq.)
