Coriʹneus (3 syl.)

.

A mythical hero in the suite of Brute, who conquered the giant Goœmʹagot, for which achievement the whole western horn of England was allotted him. He called it Corinʹea, and the people Corinʹeans, from his own name.

“In meed of these great conquests by them got,


Corineus had that province utmost west


To him assynëd for his worthy lot,


Which of his name and memorable gest,


He callëd Cornwall.”
