Absus a river of Palestine, according to Vibius Sequester (see Reland, Palest. p. 297), prob. the "gentle stream" (mollis) referred to by Lucan (5, 485), and by Caesar (Bell. Civ. 3, 13), as having been crossed by Pompey near Apollonia; hence, no doubt, the brooklet that enters the Mediterranean at this place.
