BO´CANUM HE´MERUM (Βοκανὸν ἥμερον), mentioned by Ptolemy (4.1.15) among the inland cities of Mauretania Tingitana, SE. of Dorath, and NE. of Vala, in 9° 20′ long., and 29 1/2° N. lat., is supposed by some geographers to answer to the position of Marocco, where ancient ruins are found: but the identification is very uncertain. (Graberg, Specchio Geografico et Statistico dell' Impero di Marocco, p. 37.)
