Phasis & Lycus rivers

There are several rivers in the country, but the best known are the Phasis and the Lycus, which empty into the Pontic Sea (Eratosthenes wrongly writes "Thermodon" instead of "Lycus"), whereas the Cyrus and the Araxes empty into the Caspian Sea, and the Euphrates and the Tigris into the Red Sea.There are also large lakes in Armenia; one the Mantiane, which being translated means "Blue"; it is the largest salt water lake after Lake Maeotis, as they say, extending as far as Atropatia; and it also has salt-works.
