Definition
the western of the two great rivers that surrounded Mesopotamia; beginning in modern day Turkey and flowing along the borders of Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq until it empties into the Persian Gulf
  • And here the tam'd Euphrates humbly glides, And there the Rhine submits her swelling tides, And proud Araxes, whom no bridge could bind; The Danes' unconquer'd offspring march behind, And Morini, the last of humankind.
