OK then,  a different type of question.

This is an anagram, from the following sentence, you are looking for the names of three Greek Rivers. Secondly, one of the rivers also flows in another country. Which one and which other country?

Hi, my name is Stan Clothaso!  Cool

(9), (6) and (7)

Is one of the rivers the Inachos? If it is then we can all work on the rest in a process of elimination?

No, sorry Susie, that's not one of my three rivers.

It's a good one though, so please have a bonus point for finding it!      Thankyou

You could start with the y maybe as being a letter which is not in many of the names of the Greek Rivers most frequently mentioned on the internet?

Also the rivers, where I have told you how many letters are in each, they are in alphabetical order.

I did use Google as my source!

I could tell you the first letter of each river if you want although that might give it away?

Generally speaking you are looking for the traditional, current English name of each river, so don't look for ancient or unusual Greek spellings.

The first one has something quite impressive about it.

The second one is the one which flows in two countries, (for the second country think Womble!).

The last one has the y somewhere within it.

Just go with the flow!    Very Happy

No, but the other country is Bulgaria, so another point to you, Susie. Very Happy

That was the Womble clue, Great Uncle Bulgaria.

Don't forget you know the third one has a y in it. When I Google Greek Rivers or look in Wikipedia, it's fairly near the front or top of the list.

The first is superior to the others in one particular way.....what springs to mind when thinking about comparing rivers?

If you want the first letter of each, let me know..... Very Happy

Yes, Nestos is correct Susie, that's the second one alphabetically which is in Bulgaria as well as Greece, so now three points to you.

Now for the other two? Very Happy

Yes, Joy, it is Thyamis. A point to you!  Very Happy

So what is the third river? Why is it extra special?

It's a cemetery obviously. Some of those stones look as if they're wearing hats! Is that significant?
