RHO´GONIS

RHO´GONIS (Ῥώγονις, Arrian Ind. chap. 39), a river of ancient Persis, which flows into the Persian [p. 2.716]Gulf in lat. 29° 20′, long. 48° 25′ E. It was little better than a torrent, and is now doubtless marked by the present Bender-rik. Ptolemy (6.4.2) and Ammianus (23.6) call it Rhogomanis (Ῥογομάνις), and Marcianus (Peripl. 1.24, ed Müller) Rhogomanius (Ῥογομάνιος). (Vincent, vol. i. p. 401; Thevenot, v. p. 535.)
