Hydramia (Ancient Greek: Ὑδραμία),[1] or Hydramum or Hydramon (Ὕδραμον),[2] was a town of ancient Crete.[3] According to the Stadiasmus Maris Magni, it was located on the north coast of Crete, 100 stadia east of an unknown location Amphimatrium or Amphimatrion (Άμφιματρίον), probably meaning Amphimalion.[3][2][4]

The site of Hydramia is located near modern .[3][5]
