Holmi or Holmoi (Ancient Greek: Ὅλμοι), or Holmia,[1] also possibly called Hermia, was a Greek[2] town of Cilicia Tracheia with a harbor, a little to the south-west of Seleucia ad Calycadnum. When Seleucia ad Calycadnum was founded, the inhabitants of Holmi migrated there.[3][4]

Its site is located near Taşucu in Asiatic Turkey.[5][6]
