An ancient canal of the Egyptian delta, with its western end on the Canopic branch of the Nile at Hierakonpolis and its eastern end at Pelusium (modern Tell el-Farama), deviating from an east-west line between the two at Bouto (modern Kom el-Farain).

Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 74 D2 Boutikos fl.

The Barrington Atlas directory postfixed the string "fl." (abbreviation for "flumen") to the label "Boutikos". This is normal practice for a natural river in BAtlas, but the map symbology clearly indicates that the feature is a canal (a classification confirmed by Trismegistos). The Greek "potamos" is part of the attested name as found in the papyri, and this may be the origin for the BAtlas directory's otherwise unaccountable use of the label (which has been removed here in all but the BAtlas citation itself).
