. (Λευκὴ ἀκτή
), a promontory of MARMARICA
in N. Africa, W. of the promontory Hermaeum. On the white cliff from which its name was obtained there stood a temple of Apollo, with an oracle. Its position is uncertain; but most probably it is the long wedge-shaped headland, which terminates the range of hills (Aspis) forming the Catabathmos Minor, and which is now called Ras-al-Kanaïs.
