VINDIUS MONS

VINDIUS MONS (Οὔινδιον ὄρος, Ptol. 7.1.28), a chain of mountains in Hindostân, extending NE. and SW. nearly, along the N. bank of the Namadus (now Nerbudda), in lat. 21°, long. 117° 30′. They are now known by the name of the Vindhya Ms., and form the principal watershed of the Nerbudda and Tapti, which flow into the Indian Ocean, a little to the N. of Bombay, and of the Soane and Andomati, which are great tributaries of the Ganges.
