Salamis (sál'a-mĭs), peaceful, or beaten. A sea-port town with a good harbor, on the eastern coast of Cyprus. It was visited by Paul and Barnabas on their first missionary journey. Acts 13:5. The city was once the capital of Cyprus, and stood on the north side of the river Pediæus. Its site is now traced by broken cisterns and columns and the foundations of ancient buildings. The ruins are known as Old Famagusta.
