As´sos, a town of Lesser Mysia, or of Adramyttium, opposite the island of Lesbos, or Mitylene. Paul came hither on foot from Troas, to meet with his friends, in order to take shipping for Mitylene (Acts 20:13-14). It is now a miserable village, called Beiram, built high upon the rocks on the side towards the land.
