SEVO a lofty mountain in the extreme north of ancient Germany, in the island of Scandia, in the territory of the Ingaevones. It was believed to equal in extent and magnitude the Ripaei Montes. (Plin. Nat. 4.27; Solin. 20.) There can be no doubt that this mountain is the same as Mount Kjölen which at present separates Sweden from Norway, and the southern branch of which still bears the name of Seve-Ryggen. [SCANDIA]
