Cheimerium (Cheimerion), a promontory and harbour of Thesprotia in
Epeirus, between the rivers Acheron and Thyamis, and opposite the southern point
of Corcyra. In the two naval engagements between the Corcyraeans and Corinthians
just before the Peloponnesian war, Cheimerium was the station of the Corinthian
fleet. Leake supposes the promontory of Cheimerium to be C. Varlam, and the harbour
that of Arpitza. (Thuc. i. 30, 46; Strab. vii. p. 324; Paus. viii. 7. § 2; Steph.
B. s. v.; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iii. p. 5.)
