Zephyrium

Ζεφύριον, sc. ἀκρωτήριον, i. e. “the western promontory”). The name of several promontories of the ancient world, not all of which, however, faced the west. The chief of them were:


1.

Now C. di Brussano, a promontory in Bruttium, forming the southeastern extremity of the country, from which the Locri, who settled in the neighbourhood, are said to have obtained the name of Epizephyrii. (See Locri.)


2.

A promontory on the west coast of Cyprus.


3.

In Cilicia (prob. C. Cavaliere), a far-projecting promontory, west of Prom. Sarpedon.
