METAGO´NIUM (Μεταγώνιον, Strab. xvii. pp. 827--829 ; Pomp. Mela, 1.7.1), a headland of N. Africa, which Strabo (l.c.) places over against Carthago Nova, at a distance of 3000 stadia. He describes the district about it as being dry and barren, and bearing the same name; the headland is now called Râs-el-Harsbah. (Comp. Shaw, Tray. p. 94.)
