HARMATHUS (Ἁρμαθοῦς,), a town on the north coast of the bay of Adramyttium, on the east of Cape Lectum; it is mentioned only by Thucydides (8.101) as opposite to the town of Methymna in Lesbos. It cannot have had any connection with Cape Amathus, which was situated much further south (Strab. xiii. p.622), and is probably the same as Cape Canae. [CANAE]
