BERIS or BIRES (Βῆρις, Βίρης), a river of Pontus, which Arrian places 60 stadia from the Thoaris. Hamilton (Researches, &c. vol. i. p. 280) identifies it with the Melitsch Chai, “a deep and sluggish river,” between Unieh and the Thermodon. He found it to be six miles, or 60 stadia, from the Thuréh Irmak, which he seems to identify correctly with the Thoaris.
