CTENUS PORTUS (Κτενοῦς λιμήν, Strab. vii. pp. 308. 312), the port which from the N. side, meeting the SYMBOLON PORTUS on the S., made up the smaller or Heracleotic Chersonesus as forming part of the greater or Tauric Chersonesus. It is identified with the harbour of Sevastopol, which is described as one of the finest in the world, and as resembling that of Malta. It is divided into three coves. A full account of it will be found in Clarke (Trav. vol. ii. p. 199; Jones, Trav. vol. ii. p. 253; comp. Journ. Geog. Soc. vol. i. p. 110).
