CHATRAMOTITAE a people of the south of Arabia. (Plin. Nat. 6.28.) The country he names Atramitae. Both names are but different forms of Adramitae [ADRAMITAE], the ancient inhabitants of that part of the southern coast of Arabia still called Hadramaut, originally settled, it would appear, by the descendants of the Joctanite patriarch Hazarmaveth. (Gen. 10.26; Forster, Arabia, vol. i. p. 113, vol. ii. p. 324.)
