In this paper we disprove a conjecture stated in  on the equality of two notions of dimension for closed cones. Moreover, we answer in the negative to the following question, raised in the same paper. Given a compact family of closed cones and a set S such that every blow-up of S at every point x ∈ S is contained in some element of , is it true that the dimension of S is smaller then or equal to the largest dimension of a vector space contained is some element of ?
