GENE´TES (Γενήτης), the name of a small river and harbour on the coast of Pontus, near Cotyora. (Strab. xii. p.548; Steph. B. sub voce Scylax, who calls it Γενέσιντις. Some authors also mention a promontory (῎ακρα Γενηταία) in that neighbourhood (Steph. B. sub voce l.c.; Apollon. 2.1009; V. Fl. 5.148); and Pliny (6.4) speaks of a people Genetae in the same district.
