DAMNO´NIUM in South Britain. Damnium is the form of the word in Marcianus Heracleota. In Ptolemy it is Damnonium, so that the variations noticed under DAMNII are here repeated. Each author gives Ocris as a synonym for the headland (Δαμνόνιον, τὸ καὶ Ὄκρινον ἄκρον, Ptol., and Δάμνιον ἄκρον τὸ καὶ Ὄκριον καλούμενον,Marcian. Heracl.), of which the modern name is the Lizard (in Cornwall). [DUMNONII.]
