After all this had been done, Alexander marched back with all his army to the Acesines River by the same route by which he had come.1 There he found the ships built which he had ordered. He fitted these out and built others.

1 Nicaea and Bucephala lay on what should be called the Hydaspes, but this river (the Jhelum) became the Acesines after its confluence with the Sandabal and the Hyarotis. Below, however (chap. 96.1) Diodorus mentions the confluence of the Acesines and Hydaspes, as if they were different. Or perhaps the Acesines is the Sandabal (Chenab) after all (as Arrian. 6.14.5).
