CABUBATHRA MONS (Καβούβαθρα ὄρος), a mountain on the SW. coast of Arabia, mentioned by Ptolemy (6.7. § § 8, 12) as the western extremity of the country of the Homeritae, 1 1/2° E. of the Straits of the Red Sea (Bab-el-Mandeb). This situation would nearly coincide with the Jebel Kurruz in Capt. Haines's Chart, which rises to the height of 2772 feet.
