SUE´BUS (Σούηβος), a river on the north coast of Germany, between the Albis and Viadus, which flows into the Baltic at a distance of 850 stadia to the west of the mouth of the Viadus (Marcian. p. 53), and which, according to Ptolemy (2.11.1), divided at its mouth into several branches. Notwithstanding these explicit statements, it is extremely difficult to identify the river, whence some regard it as the Peene, others as the Warne, and others again as the Viadus or Oder itself, or rather the central branch of it, which is called the Swine or Schweene.
