(Σελήνης ὄρος ἄκρον
, Ptol. 2.5.4
), a headland on the W. coast of Lusitania, placed by Ptolemy 10
minutes N. of the mouth of the Tagus, and therefore corresponds to the C. da Roca,
where Resendius found ruins of what he took for a temple of the Sun and Moon, with inscriptions (Antiq. Lusit.
p. 52). Others, however, identify it with the more northern C. Carvoeiro;
and, in fact, the accounts of the headlands on this coast are given in a confused manner by the ancient writers.
