Catania, Sicily, Italy (37.50224 15.08738)
Around 263 BC, the city was variously known as Catĭna (Latin: ) and Catăna (Latin: ; Ancient Greek: Κατάνη ). The former has been primarily used for its supposed assonance with catina, the Latin feminization of the name catinus. Catinus has two meanings: "a gulf, a basin or a bay" and "a bowl, a vessel or a trough", thanks to the city's distinctive topography.
