MA´CETA (Μάκετα, Nearch. Peripl. p. 22: C. Musseldom), a promontory of Arabia, at the entrance of the Persian gulf, opposite the promontory Harmozon in Carmania. (Strab. xv. p.726, xvi. p. 765.) It was on the coast of the Macae, and is, therefore, called by Strabo (xvi. p.765) a promontory of the Macae, without giving it any special name. It formed the NW. extremity of the mountains of the Asabi, and is, therefore, called by Ptolemy (6.7.12), τὸ Ἀσαβῶν ἄκρον.
