SIROC (Σιρώκ), a town of Parthyene, noticed by Isidorus. (Stath. Part. 100.12, ed. Müller.) It is not clear whether there is any corresponding modern town; but Rennell thinks it is represented by the present Serakhs. (Geog. Herod. p. 297.) Ptolemy places a district which he calls Siracene among the Astabeni, a people who occupied part of Hyrcania (6.9.5). It is not impossible that Siroc and Siracene may be thus connected.
