CESTRUS

CESTRUS
Pamphyliae fluv. Mela, l. 1. c. 14. Duo validessimi fluvii, Cestros, et Catarractes. Ubi Cestrum vulgo dictum putant, quia se praecipitat: Movit hoc nonnullos, ut ibi Oestrum, pro Cestro reponerent, prorsus inepte. Κέςτρον plerique hunc amnem vocant. Fugit vero illos hoc vocabulum etiam sagittam, et iaculum significare. Potuissent hoc illos docere Grammatici, qui Α᾿κόντισμα interpretantur. Hinc κεςτροσφενδόνη apud Livium, l. 42. c. 65. et Tacticos, et ξύλον κεςτρωτὸν, pro sude praeusta, quam περίκαυςτον aliter appellant. Hesych. κεςτρωτὸν ξύλον, βαρὺ ἔχων τὸ κέντρον, οὐκ ἔχει δὲ ςιδηρὸν οὐδὲ ἀκμην´. Εἰώθαςι δὲ οἱ βοτῆρεςτ πυροῦν τὰ ἄκρα τῶ αὔων ξύλων, ἕνεκα τȏυ πεπυρῶςθαι, πυρικαυςτον. Ita legendus iste locus, quem perperam emendare conatur vir magnus, in Solimanis. At vero longe aliter accipiendus hic Pomponii locus, cum enim dicit, hic quia praecipitat, ita dictus, id non de Cestro, sed Catarracte intelligi debet. Vossius. Baudrando fluvius Asiae minoris oritur in Pisidia, versus confinia Isauriae, dein per Carbaliam in Pamphyliam labitur, ubi iuxta Magedin oppid. in mare Mediterraneum et sinum Attalicum se exonerat. 25. milliat. a Sida in Occasum.
