,tol. 3.1.3), a river of Liguria, mentioned only by Ptolemy, who describes it as a confluent of the Macra or Magra
: hence it may safely be identified with the Vara,
the only considerable tributary of that stream, which rises in the mountains at the back of Chiavari,
and flows through a transverse valley of the Apennines till it joins the Magra
about 10 miles from its mouth.
