SARIPHI MONTES (τὰ Σάριφα ὄρη), a chain of mountains, extending, according to Ptolemy, between Margiana and Ariana, and the watershed of several small streams. They are probably those now called the Hazáras. Manner (5.2. p. 65), has supposed them the same as the Σαπφείροι (see Dion. Perieg. 5.1099), but this is contrary to all probability.
