Name of the cape at the southernmost tip of Attica,
facing the open sea and the Cyclades.
This is the place where Crito says, at the beginning of the dialogue that bears his name, the ship coming back from Delos had been spotted, meaning she would be back in Athens by the next day, that would thus be Socrates' last day (Crito, 43d).
