a lake in Bithynia, between the Ascania Lacus and the river Sangarius. (Amm. Marc. xxvi. S.)
It is probably the same lake which is mentioned by Evagrius (Hist. Eccl.
2.14) under the name of Βοάνη λίμνη
in the neighbourhood of Nicomedeia, and which is at present known under the name of Shabanja.
It seems, also, to be the same lake from which the younger Pliny (10.50
) proposed to cut a canal to the sea.
