  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Adramyttium 
  a  city  of  Asia  Minor  on  the  coast  of  Mysia,  which  in  early  times 
  was  called  AEolis.  The  ship  in  which  Paul  embarked  at  Caesarea 
  belonged  to  this  city  (Acts  27:2).  He  was  conveyed  in  it  only  to 
  Myra,  in  Lycia,  whence  he  sailed  in  an  Alexandrian  ship  to 
  Italy.  It  was  a  rare  thing  for  a  ship  to  sail  from  any  port  of 
  Palestine  direct  for  Italy.  It  still  bears  the  name  Adramyti 
  and  is  a  place  of  some  traffic.
