Autokane — A settlement in Aeolis
Autócane was an old city in Aeolis as well as a mountain of the same name.

It is quoted in the Homeric Hymn to Apollo, where it is mentioned as the name of a mountain, and through numismatic evidence dated to the 4th century BC. C. where the inscriptions "ΑΥΤΟΚΑΝΑ" or "ΑΥΤ" appear.

Its exact location is unknown, but some scholars believe that Autócane should be identified with Cane or Canas, a mountain and a city named by other sources or that Autócane was a port of Cane or Canas. Strabo places the city of Canas on the coast of Asia Minor, opposite the southernmost tip of the island of Lesbos and says that the origin of its inhabitants was from the city of Cino, in Locrida.
