OPHARUS a small river of Sarmatia Asiatica, mentioned by Pliny (6.7. s. 7) as a tributary of the Lagous, which flowed into the Palus Maeotis. Herodotus mentions two streams, which he calls the Lycus and Oarus, which had the same course and direction (4.123, 124). It is likely that the rivers in Pliny and Herodotus are the same. It is not possible now to identify them with accuracy.
