CROCODEILON a river of Syria, near which there was formerly a town of the same name (Κροκοδείλων πόλις), between Caesarea Palaestinae and Ptolemaïs (Strab. xvi. p.758; Plin. Nat. 5.17. s. 19). It is now identified with the Náhr Zerka, in which, according to Pococke (Trav. vol. ii. p. 58.), crocodiles have been found. (Von Raumer, Palästina, pp. 53, 191.)
