BO´ON (Βοών: Vona), a cape and port on the coast of Pontus (Arrian, p. 417), 90 stadia east of Cape Jasonium. The Turks call the port Vona Liman. “It is considered the best winter harbour on this side of Constantinople, preferable even to that of Sinope, on account of the greater depth of water.” (Hamilton, Researches, &c., vol. i. p. 269.)
