SCHOENUS

SCHOENUS a bay on the west coast of Caria, on the south-east of the Cnidian Chersonesus, and opposite the island of Syme. (Pomp. Mela, 1.16; Plin. Nat. 5.29.) It should be observed, however; that this description of the bay of Schoenus is only conjectural, and based upon the order in which Pliny mentions the places in that locality.
