IDO´MENE (Ἰδομένη, Ptol. 3.13.39 ; Idomenia, Peut. Tab.), a town of Macedonia which the Tabular Itinerary places at 12 M. P. from Stena, the pass now called Demírkapi, or Iron Gate, on the river Vardhári. Sitalces, on his route from Thrace to Macedonia, crossed Mt. Cercine, leaving the Paeones on his right, and the Sinti and Maedi on his left, and descended upon the Axius at Idomene. (Thuc. 2.98.) It probably stood upon the right bank of the Axius, as it is included by Ptolemy (l.c.) in Emathia, and was near Doberus, next to which it is named by Hierocles among the towns of Consular Macedonia,. under the Byzantine empire. (Leakes. North. Greece, vol. iii. p. 444.)
