NAUSTATHMUS (Ναύσταθμος), a port-town on the Euxine, in the western part of Pontus, on a salt lake connected with the sea, and 90 stadia to the east of the river Halys. (Arrian, Peripl. p. 16; Marcian. Heracl. p. 74; Anonym. Peripl. p. 9; Tab. Peut., where it is erroneously called Nautagmus.) The Periplus of the Anonymus places it only 40 stadia east of the mouth of the Halys. Comp. Hamilton (Researches, i. p. 295), who has identified the salt lake with the modern Hamamli Ghieul; but no remains of Naustathmus have been found.
