CU´NEUS (Κούνεος), i. e. the Wedge, a name applied, from its shape, to that part of the Spanish peninsula which forms its SW. angle, and the S. part of Lusitania, from the mouth of the Anas to the SACRUM PR. (C. S. Vincent; Artemidor. ap. Strab iii. p. 137). Whether the name was also applied specifically to the headland just named, is not quite clear from Strabo; but Mela (3.1) assigns it to the S. headland of the district (C. S. Maria). Respecting the people, see CONII
