Admite, in Greek mythology, was (1) the daughter of Oceanus and Tethys. (2.) A daughter of Eurystheuswho gave her the girdle of the queen of the Amazons, which Hercules was compelled: to get. She was priestess to Juno at Argos, and fled with the statue of Juno to Samos. The Argives promised a great reward to any one who would bring the statue again from Samos. Pirates attempted this, and succeeded in bringing it on board their ship; but when about to sail the vessel would not move. Taking this for an evil omen, the sailors wound wreaths around the statue and again set it on land, and sailed off. Admete was the first who heaped divine honors on Hercules.
