SAGA´POLA

SAGA´POLA (Σαγάπολα al. Σαγάπολα ὄρος, Ptol. 4.6. § § 8, 14, 16,17), a mountain of Interior Libya, from which flows the Subus, the position of which is fixed by Ptolemy (l.c.) 13° E. long., 22° N. lat. It may be assumed that the divergent which Ptolemy describes as ascending to this mountain from the Nigeir is one of the tributaries which flow into the Djolibá or Quorra, from the highlands to the N. of that river (comp. Journ. Geog. Soc. vol. ii. p. 13.)
