τὸ Κοκκύγιον ὄρος). “Cuckoo-Mountain.” A mountain of Argolis, between Halicé and Hermioné. Its previous name was Thornax, but it received the appellation of Coccygius from the circumstance that Zeus was metamorphosed there into the bird called Coccyx (Κόκκυξ) by the Greeks. On its summit was a temple sacred to that god, and another of Apollo at the base (Pausan. ii. 36).
