SAULOE PARTHAYNISA (Σαυλώη Παρθαύνισα), this curiously mixed name which has passed into treatises of geography from the editions of Isidorus in the Geographi Graeci Minores of Hudson and Müller, appears to have rested on a bad reading of the Greek text. The amended text of the passage in question is Παρθυηνὴ σχοῖνι κέ, ἧς αὐλών (Isidor. Stath. Parth. 100.12), which is probably correct (see Geog. Graec. ed. Müller, Paris, 1855.)
