CACYRUM (Κάκυρον: Eth. Cacyrinus), a town in Sicily, mentioned only by Pliny and Ptolemy, who afford no clue to its position. But it is supposed by Cluverius to be represented by the modern Caesaro, about 4 miles N. of Palazzolo, the ancient Acrae. (Plin. Nat. 3.8. s. 14; Ptol. 3.4.14; Cluver. Sicil. p. 359.)
