ERYTHRAEUM (Ἐρυθραῖον ἄκρον, Ptol. 3.17.4), a promontory on the SE. coast of Crete. The town of ERYTHRAEA which, from its mention by Florus (3.7) along with Cydonia and Cnossus as submitting to Metellus, must have been a place of importance, probably was situated near the promontory of the same name. (Hoeck, Kreta, vol. i. pp. 426, 429.)
