HYDRAMUM (Ὕδραμον, Stadiasm.; Ὑδραμία, Steph. B. sub voce: Eth. Ὑδραμιεῖς), a city of Crete, which the Maritime Itinerary places at 100 stadia to the E. of Amphimatrium. There can be no doubt but that it is represented by the modern Sfakian village of Dhrámia, situated in the fertile little plain running between the mountains and the shore along the bay of Amphimalla. (Pashley, Trav. vol. i. p. 72; Höck, Kreta, vol. i. pp. 395, 434.)
