HIERA´TIS (Ἱέρατις, Arrian Ind. chap. 39), a town belonging to the province of Persis, on an island formed by a channel from a river in the neighbourhood. The whole country in its immediate neighbourhood appears to have been a peninsula, and to have borne the name in ancient times of Mesambria. It is not easy to fix its exact position; but it could not have been far from the modern Abushir. (Vincent, Voy. of Nearchus, vol. i. p. 390.)
