PSEUDO´STOMOS (Ψευδόστομος ποταμὸς, Ptol. 7.1. §§ 8, 33, 83, 85, 86), a stream of western India, which Ptolemy describes as flowing from Mt. Bettigo near Coimbatore to the sea near Muziris (Mangalor). It cannot with certainty be identified with any existing river, especially as along that coast, between lat. 10° and 15°, there are a great number of streams which, flowing but a short distance from mountains which approach the sea are little better than torrents.
