Σαγγάριος), Sangăris (Σάγγαρις), or Sagăris (Σάγαρις). Now Sakariyeh. The largest river of Asia Minor after the Halys; it had its source in a mountain called Adoreus, near the little town of Sangia, on the borders of Galatia and Phrygia, whence it flowed first north through Galatia, then west and northwest through the northeastern part of Phrygia, and then north through Bithynia, of which it originally formed the eastern boundary. It fell at last into the Euxine, about half way between the Bosporus and Heraclea (Strabo, p. 543).
