(Siler). River in the border region between Campania and Lucania (Siler: Luc. 2,426; Silerus: Mela 2,69; Sílaris: Str. 5,4,13; 6,1,4), modern Sele. At its mouth, there are remains of an archaic sanctuary to Hera Argiva (eight-columned pseudodipteros with 17 columns on the side wall; cf. Str. 6,1,1; Plin. HN 3,70; Solin. 2,12; Plut. Pompeius 34,3). There was a species of horse-fly by the S. that was harmful to herds of cattle (Verg. G. 3,146).
