(Καιναί; Kainaí). Settlement on the western bank of the Tigris close to the confluence of the Lower Zab; according to Xen. An. 2,4,28 a large, flourishing polis; cf. also Κάναι in Steph. Byz.; its identity with the Neo-Assyrian Kannu near Assur is doubtful, see . In the Bible it is attested as Kannē(h) (Ez 27,23) and located near Tekrit . Its etymology is unclear; perhaps it is related to Aramaic gannā, ‘wall’.
