STRYME (Στρύμη), a town on the S. coast of Thrace, a little to the W. of Mesembria, between which and Stryme flowed the small river Lissus, which the army of Xerxes is said to have drunk dry. (Hdt. 7.108.) Stryme was a colony of Thasos; but disputes seem to have arisen respecting it between the Thasii and the people of the neighbouring city of Maroneia. (Philip. ap. Demos. p. 163, R.)
