(Ζεφύριον, sc. ἀκρωτήριον, i. e. “the western promontory”). The name of several promontories of the ancient world, not all of which, however, faced the west. The chief of them were:

(1) Now C. di Brussano, a promontory in Bruttium, forming the southeastern extremity of the country, from which the Locri, who settled in the neighbourhood, are said to have obtained the name of Epizephyrii.

(2) A promontory on the west coast of Cyprus.

(3) In Cilicia (prob. C. Cavaliere), a far-projecting promontory, west of Prom. Sarpedon.
