Kritovoulos has a reference to this river, as well as the Contaezdos and Agrianes. He says that in his day the Meric/Hebrus becomes "large and navigable" near Adrianople due to the other rivers flowing into it [the three named here]. The Tearos is said to have good drinking water and generally to be beneficial, with lots of fish. In this era, the river was used by merchants for inland commerce with neighboring cities. It seems that perhaps the Tearos could be the Tunca. Maybe one of the others is the Arda. I'm not sure about the third, since I focus on early Ottoman Edirne and it has three rivers immediately associated with it now.
