PARAGON SINUS

PARAGON SINUS (Παράγων κόλπος, Ptol. 6.8.7; Marcian, 100.28. ed. Muller), a gulf on the shore of Gedrosia, a little way beyond the Prom. Carpella (now Cape Bombareek), according to Ptolemy. Marcian states that. it was of considerable size, and extended as far as the promontory called Alambater (now Râs Guadel). and the island of Liba or Ziba. It appears to have been in that part of Gedrosia which was inhabited by the Ichthyophagi: it is not, however, noticed in Nearchus's voyage. [V].
