Myrina - A settlement in Aeolis
Myrina was one of the Aeolian cities on the western coast of Mysia, about 40 stadia to the southwest of Gryneion.

It is said to have been founded by one Myrinus before the other Aeolian cities, and was a very strong place, though not very large, and with a good harbor.

Under Roman rule, Myrina was part of the Roman province of Asia. It twice suffered severe earthquakes; first in the reign of Tiberius, and a second time in the reign of Trajan. The town was restored each time, and continued to exist until a late period.

The site of Myrina was discovered at the mouth of the river that was the ancient Pythicos, whose alluvia have covered what was the city's harbour.

Modern location: Near the town of Aliağa, Turkey
