MARA´BIUS

MARA´BIUS (Μαράβιος, Μαρούβιος, Ptol. 5.9.2), a river of Sarmatia, which Reichard has identified with the Manyez, an affluent of the Don, on the left bank of that river. Some have considered the Manyez to represent the ACHARDEUS (Ἀχαρδέος but Strabo (xi. p.506) expressly says that the latter discharges itself into the Maeotis. (Schafarik, Slav. Alt. vol. i. pp. 60, 500.)
