BUMADUS (Βουμώδος, Arrian, 3.8; Curt. 4.9; Βουμήλος, Arrian, 6.11), a small stream in Assyria about sixty stadia from Arbela. The name is met with in the MSS. with various spellings--Bumadus, Bumodus, Bumelus, Bumolus. It is said (Forbiger, Handbuch, vol. ii. p. 608) to be now called the Khazir. Tavernier (2.100.5.) states that he met with a stream called the Bohrus, which, he thinks, may be identified with it.
