On the river (and similarly-named city) Tanais or Don, at the top of the Black Sea, see generally D.C. Braund in OCD(4) 1430.
The spelling 'Iaxartes' (or Jaxartes) was more common.
Due to a geographical confusion, the Syr Darya in present-day Kazakhstan was thought to be the source of the Don and also called the Iaxartes and Tanais. Other names for it were Iaxartes, Silis, Tanais, Araxes, Laxates, Orexartes, Oxyartes.
