EURYME´NAE (Εὐρυμεναί, Apoll. Rhod., Steph. B. sub voce Ἐρυμναί, Strab.: Eth. Εὐρυμένιος).


A town of Magnesia in Thessaly, situated upon the coast at the foot of Mt. Ossa, between Rhizus and Myrae. (Scylax, p. 25; Strab. ix. p.443; Liv. 39.25.) Pliny relates that crowns thrown into a fountain at Eurymenae became stones. (Plin. Nat. 31.2. s. 20.) Leake supposes the site of Eurymenae to be represented by some ancient remains between Thanátu and Karítza. (Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iv. p. 415.)


A town of Molossis in Epirus, is placed by Leake in the vale of the Upper Acheron, towards Latriá, Variádhes, or Tervitzianá. (Diod. 19.88; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. i. p. 253.)
