EURY´MEDON

EURY´MEDON (Εὐρυμέδων), a river flowing in a due southern direction through Pisidia and Pamphylia, in which latter country it was navigable; but [p. 1.886]its entrance is now closed by bars. It empties itself into the Mediterranean, a little below Aspendus. (Respecting the famous battle on the river Eurymedon, in B.C. 466, see Thuc. 1.100; Diod. 11.61; comp. Xenoph. Hell. 4.8; Dionys. Perieg. 852; Strab. xiv. p.667; Arrian, Arr. Anab. 1.27; Liv. 37.23; Plin. Nat. 5.26, and numerous other passages.) Its modern name is Capri-Su, and near its sources Sav-Su.
