CURIA´NUM (Κουριανὸν ἄκρον), is placed by Ptolemy (2.7) on the coast of Aquitania, between the mouth of the Adour and of the Garonne. There seems no place that corresponds to it except the Pointe d'Arcachon, on the north side of the Bassin d'Arcachon. Some geographers fix it at the Pointe de Grave, near the Tour de Cordouan, the point which is on the south side of the entrance of the Gironde.
