PHOENI´CUS (Φοινικοῦς λιμην, Strab. xvii. p.799; Ptol. 4.5.7; Stadiasm. § 12), a harbour of Marmarica, off which there were the two islands DIDYMAE, which must not be confounded with those which Ptolemy (4.5.76) places off the Chersonesus Parva on the coast of Aegypt. Its position must be sought between PNIGEUS (Πνίγευς, [p. 2.620]Strab. l.c.; Ptol. l.c.; Stadiasm. l c.), which is identified with Râs Tanhub, and Râs-al-Kanaïs.
