GIGO´NIS PROM (Γίγωνις ἄκρα, Etym. Mag. s. v. Ἠγωνίς, Ptol. 3.13.23), a promontory on the coast of the Crossaea, in Macedonia, with a town GIGONUS (Γίγωνος, Steph. B. sub voce to which the Athenian force, which had been employed against Perdiccas, marched in three days from Beraea. (Thuc. 1.61.) It appears, from the order of the names in Herodotus (7.123), that it was to the S. of Cape Aeneium, the great Karaburnú; hence its situation [p. 1.1002]was nearly that of Cape Apanomí. (Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iii. p. 452.)
