A river flowing into the Aegean Sea.
Greek Original:
*me/gistos: potamo\s e)n *ai)gai/w| pela/gei ei)sba/llwn.
No river of this name ('Greatest') is otherwise attested. Perhaps a clumsy reading of Stephanus of Byzantium s.v. Ainia, where a R.Ainios (cf. Strabo 13.1.44) and the descriptor me/gistos occur in close proximity.
