TALMEN (Ταλμήν, Arrian, Indic. 100.29), a port of Gedrosia at which the fleet of Nearchus found a secure harbour. It is not clear what place now may be identified with it, and different geographers have held different opinions. Vincent (Voyage of Nearchus, i. p. 271) thinks it is the bay formed by the mouth of a small river called by Ptolemy Candriaces or Hydriaces (6.8.8). It was probably close to the modern town, Choubar Tiz and Purug. (Cf. Gosselin, iii. p. 148.)
