An ancient body of water, mentioned by Skylax and Pliny the Elder (who terms it a "lacus") bordering the Atlantic coast in what is now northwest Morocco. Some modern scholars believe it should be associated with the modern Oued Tahadart/Oued Khobs near El Khaoucha.

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
