STALIOCA´NUS PORTUS (Σταλιοκανὸς λιμήν). Ptolemy (2.8.2) places this port between Gobaeum Promontorium [GOBAEUM] and the mouth of the Tetus, on the coast of Gallia Lugdunensis. D'Anville (Notice, &c.) found in a manuscript plan of the Anse du Conquet the name of Port Sliocan, N. of Cap Mahé, at the bottom of the road of Loo-Christ. Lobineau in his History of Bretagne says that the name means White Tower, and that there were traces of a port there, constructed of brick and cement. Gosselin places the Staliocanus on the N. coast of Bretagne, at the outlet of the river on which Morlaix stands. It is impossible to determine which of the numerous bays on this irregular coast is Ptolemy's Staliocanus.
