Apollonius' geography has often been seen as faulty in the past but how could it be-he probably knew Eratosthenes the Great Geographer! If you look up Lykus in Barrington’s Atlas, there are lots of occurences of the name in the area. The map shows how A. might have thought that the Kyrus joined up with the Phasis. It's a feasible supposition.
