Lycus (Wolf), a river of Palestine, mentioned by ancient geographers as situated between ancient Biblus and Berytus (Strabo, 16, page 755; Pliny, 5:20). This is evidently the modern Nahr el-Kelb (Dog River), at the mouth of which, about 2 ½ hours N.E. of Beirut, are found the remarkable rock-
tablets of ancient victorious kings (Wilson, 2:405; Robinson, Later Res. page 619 sq.).
