COPHAS (Κωφάς, Marcian. p. 23; Arrian, Indic. 100.27; Κωφάντα λιμήν, Ptol. 6.8.9; Κωφάντα πόλις, Ptol. 6.8.14), a small port in Gedrosia to which the fleet of Nearchus came on their way from the Indus to C. Jask. Vincent places it to the east of C. Guadel, because this appears on the whole to coincide best with the words of Arrian. There can be little doubt that Cophas was the real name, though Ptolemy has Cophanta.
