CO´LAPIS a river in the country of the Iapodes, in Pannonia, the district about the mouth of which was occupied by the tribe called Colapiani. (Strab. pp. 207, 214; Plin. Nat. 3.28.) Dio Cassius calls the river Colops (49.38, its modern name is Kulpa), and, according to Strabo, it flowed from the Alps, and having, in its course, become navigable, emptied itself into the Savus near Siscia or Segestica.
