TORNADOTUS a small river of Assyria, mentioned by Pliny (6.27. s. 31), and a tributary of the Tigris. It is probably the same stream as that noticed by Xenophon under the name of the Physcus. (Anab. 2.4.25.) It may be the modern Torna or Odorneh. Mannert (6.2. p. 317) takes it to be the same as the Adiabas of Ammianus (23.6); but the Adiabas is more likely to be that elsewhere called the Zabatus (now Záb).
