XYLENO´POLIS a town said by Pliny, on the authority it would seem of Onesicritus or Nearchus, to have been founded by Alexander the Great (6.23. s. 26). It must have been in the southern part of Sinde; but its position cannot be recognised, as Pliny himself states that the authors to whom he refers did not say on what river it was situated.
