Aroanius (Aroanios), the name of three rivers in Arcadia.
1. Or Olbius (Olbios), called Anias (Anias) by Strabo, a river rising in the mountains
to the north of Pheneus, and falling into some caverns called katavothra, near
the latter city. When these caverns happened to be blocked up, the waters of the
river overflowed the whole plain, and communicated with the Ladon and the Alpheius.
(Strab. viii. p. 389; Paus. viii. 14. § 3, 15. § 6.)
2. (Katzana), a tributary of the Ladon, and flowing past the western side of Cleitor.
(Paus. viii. 19. § 4, 21. § 1.) Polybius (iv. 70), without mentioning the name
of the river, properly describes it as an impetuous torrent from the neighbouring
mountains. The trout in the Aroanius are said to have sung like thrushes. (Paus.
viii. 21. § 2; Athen. viii. p. 331, e.; Plin. ix. 19; Leake, Morea, vol. ii. pp.
241,263, seq.) This river rose in the Aroanian mountains (ore Aroania, Paus. viii.
18. § 7), now called Khelmos, which is 7726 feet in height. (Leake, Peloponnesiaca,
3. A tributary of the Erymanthus, flowing on one side of Psophis. (Paus. viii.
24. § 3.)
