CAMBY´SES (Yori or Gori), a river of Albania, rising in the Caucasus, or, according to Mela, in the Coraxici M., flowing through the district of Cambysene, and falling into the Cyrus (Kur), after uniting with the Alazonius (Alasan). Pompey marched along its banks, on his expedition into these regions in pursuit of Mithridates, B.C. 65. Its water was remarkable for its coldness. (Mel. 3.5.6; Plin. [p. 1.489]6.13. s. 15 ; D. C. 37.3; Epit. Strab. ap. Hudson, Geogr. Min. vol. ii. p. 148.)
