( ῾Υδάσπης), a river noticed in Judith 1, 6, in connection with the Euphrates and Tigris, mentioned by Arrian (Ind. 4) and Strabo (15, 697), which flowed westwards into the Indus, and is now called Jelam (Rawlinson, Herod. i, 558). The well-known Hydaspes of India is too remote to accord with the other localities noticed in the context. We may perhaps identify it with the Choaspes or Euloeus of Susiana, which was called Hydaspes by the Romans (Voss, ad Justin. ii, 14).
