DIUM (Δίον ἄκρον, Ptol. 3.17.7), a promontory of Crete on the N. coast, where the island has its greatest breadth. Pliny (4.20) speaks of an inland town of this name (comp. Euseb. Praep. Ev. 5.31), which probably, however, was situated in the neighbourhood of this headland, which is now called Kávo Stravró (Höck, Kreta, vol. i. pp. 394, 398).
