COMMENASES (Κομμενάσης, Arrian, Indic. 2.4), a large river which flowed into the Ganges. There has been some doubt with what modern river it can be identified, and Rennell, Mannert, and Forbiger, have held different opinions on the subject. On the whole, we are inclined to think that Forbiger is right in supposing it to be the Gumty, which enters the Ganges on its left bank, between Benares and Ghazipur. Rennell thought it was the Caramassa, and Mannert the Gogra. (Rennell, Hindostan; Mannert, vol. v. pt. 1, p. 70.)
