KIZIL IRMAK, i.e. " Red River " (anc. Halys), the largest river in Asia Minor, rising in the Kizil Dagh at an altitude of 65oo ft., and running south-west past Zara to Sivas. Below Sivas it flows south to the latitude of Kaisarieh, and then curves gradually round to the north. Finally, after a course of about boo m., it discharges its waters into the Black Sea between Sinope and Samsun, where it forms a large delta. The only important tributaries are the Delije Irmak on the right and the Geuk Irmak on the left bank.
