An ancient geographic feature mentioned in two Hellenistic treaties where it is described as a watercourse. Scholars argue that it is to be identified with the modern Khavgas/Havgas gorge, which runs intermittently to drain the Katharo Plateau in central-east Crete. The gorge empties naturally into the Lasithi plain where the modern Agios Georgios reservoir has been built to collect its runoff (close to the town of Agios Konstantinos).
