Xylenopolis, a town at the mouth of the Indus, built by Alexander, supposed to be Laheri.


Pliny 6, c. 23.

The journal of the voyage of Onesikritus and Nearchus has neither the names of the stations nor the distances set down in it; and first of all it is not sufficiently explained where and near what river Xylenopolis was--a city founded by Alexander and that from which his expedition started when it left India
