BOSTRE´NUS (Βοστρηνός: Nahr el-Auly), the “graceful” river upon whose waters Sidon was situated. (Dionys. Per. 913.) The stream rises in Mount Lebanon, NE. of Deir-el-Kanr and Bteddîn, from fountains an hour and a half beyond the village of El-Bârûk; it is at first a wild torrent, and its course nearly south-west. (Burkhardt, Syria, p. 206; Robinson, Travels, vol. iii. p. 429; Chesney, Exped. Euphrat. vol. i. p.467.)
