    A titular see of Asia Minor. Kyme (Doric, Kyma) was a port on the Kymaios Kolpos (Tchandarli Bay), the most important city of Æolis, and was founded by the Æolians about the eleventh or the thirteenth century B.C., according to old traditions, by Pelops on his return from Greece. After defeating Oenomanos and expelling the native inhabitants, he gave to the city the name of Amazon Kyme. Another uncommon name was Phrykonis. Cyme is mentioned in the "Synecdemus" of Hierocles and in the "Notitiae episcopatuum" as late as the thirteenth or fourteenth century. Five bishops are mentioned in Lequien (I, 729), from 431 to 787. There was another, John, in 1216. Cyme is identified with the small village of Lamourt, in the vilayet of Smyrna. The name is sometimes transcribed Cume, or even Cumae, possibly a source of confusion with Cumae in Italy. There was also a Cyme in Ægyptus Secunda, a suffragan of Cabasa.
