My´ra, one of the chief towns of Lycia, in Asia Minor. It lay about a league from the sea (in N. lat. 36° 18′; E. long. 30°), upon a rising ground, at the foot of which flowed a navigable river with an excellent harbor at its mouth. The town now lies desolate. When Paul was on his voyage from Cesarea to Rome, he and the other prisoners were landed here, and were re-embarked in a ship of Alexandria bound to Rome ().
