The Mat (Albanian indefinite form, the definite form is "Mati", from Ancient greek Mathis, "Μαθις") is a river in northern Albania. It rises in the Mat District, which takes it name from the river. About 10 km downstream from the town Burrel it flows into a large reservoir ("Liqeni i Ulzës" - "Lake Ulzë"). It flows through another, smaller reservoir ("Liqeni i Shkopetit" - "Lake Shkopet") and forms a narrow gorge through the mountain range that separates the Mat district from the coastal plains.

After a total length of 115 km, the Mat flows into the Adriatic Sea between the towns Lezhë and Laç.

This river was known as "Mathis" in ancient times.
