CAMBYSES (Καμβύσης, Ptol. 6.2.1; Amm. Marc. 23.6), a river of Media Atropatene, which appears, from the notice in Ptolemy, to have flowed into the Caspian Sea. It is not possible to determine its exact locality; but if the order in Ammianus be correct, it would seem to have been near the Amardus, now Sefid-Rúd. In the Epitome of Strabo (xi.) a nation of the Caspians is spoken of περὶ τὸν Καμβύσην ποταμόν.
