LETHAEUS (Ληθαῖος), a small river of Caria, which has its sources in Mount Pactyes, and after a short course from north to south discharges itself into the Maeander, a little to the south-east of Magnesia. (Strab. xii. p.554, xiv. p. 647; Athen. 15.683.) Arundell (Seven Churches, p. 57) describes the river which he identifies with the ancient Lethaeus, as a torrent rushing along over rocky ground, and forming many waterfalls.
