However, Adler reports that one ms (F) has 'of a place' rather than 'of a river', and anyway according to Ptolemy 6.12.4 there was a tribe called the Kirradaieis living along the Oxus, with a (perhaps related) people of the Himalayas whose name was variously rendered: Chirotosagi, Kirradai, Cirrabe-Indi, Kirradia, Korouda, Piladai, Sciratae, Thalutae. (See Barrington Atlas map 6 grid F4.)
