Eth. CRAUNI (Κραῦνοι), a promontory on the Cilician coast, mentioned in the Stadiasmus: “from the Melas river to the point Crauni, 40 stadia.” [CRAMBUSA No. 2.] Leake observes (Asia Minor, p. 206), “The river which joins the sea at the bottom of the bay of Papadúla, being the largest stream on the part of the coast under consideration, seems to be the Melas of the Stadiasmus; and the cape which lies midway between that stream and Celenderis may possibly be the Crauni of the same authority.”
