SAGANUS (Σαγανός, Marcian, Peripl. p. 21., ed. Hudson), a small river on the coast of Carmania, about 200 stadia from Harmuza. It is mentioned also by Ptolemy (6.8.4), and Pliny (6.25). It is probably the same stream which is called by Ammianus Marcellinus, Saganis (23.6). Vincent thinks that it may be represented by a small river which flows into the Persian Gulf, near Gomeroon. (Voy. of Nearchus, vol. i. p. 370).
