Ἀμίτων), of Eleutherae in Crete, is said to have been the first person who sung to the lyre amatory poems. His descendants were called Amitores (Ἀμίτορες). (Athen. 14.638b.) There seems some corruption in the text of Athenaeus, as the two names Amiton and Amitores do not correspond. Instead of the former we ought perhaps to read Ametor. (Comp. Etym. M. p. 83. 15, ed. Sylburg.; Hesych. s. v. Ἀμητορίδαι.)
