CATHRAPS (Κάθραψ, Ptol. 6.8.4; Marcian. p. 20), a small river of Carmania, about which little more is known than its name. It was 700 stadia NW. of the mouth of the Corius. Reichard considered the Salsus of Pliny to be identical with the Cathraps (or, as in some MSS. it is called, the Araps) of Ptolemy, and that it is represented by the modern Shiur; but this seems very doubtful.
