), a small river of Macedonia, flowing by Dium through marshes into the sea.
It was celebrated for the excellence of its τευθίδες,
or cuttle-fish. (Liv. 44.6
; Athen. 7.326
d.; Lycophr. 274.) Pausanias (9.30.8
) relates that this was the same river as the Helicon, which, after flowing 75 stadia above ground, has then a subterraneous course of 22 stadia, and on its reappearance is navigable under the name of Baphyras. (Leake, Northern Greece,
vol. iii. p. 411.) [p. 1.377]
