STACHIR (Στάχειρ, Ptol. 4.6. § § 7 and 8), a river on the W. coast of Libya Interior, which rose in Mount Ryssadium. Not far from its source it formed a lake named Clonia, and after flowing in a westerly direction, discharged itself into the Sinus Hesperius, to the SE. of the promontory of Ryssadium. It is probably the same river which Pliny (5.1. s. 1) calls Salsus, and may be the modern St. John or St. Antonio river, also called Rio de Guaon.
