In his short, but very comprehensive paper Hammond rejected two earlier theories about the identity of the Astræus: that it was either the Axios or the Aliákmon rivers .
Both rivers are in the area discussed by Ælian, but the Axios is a large river and bore the same name in ancient times.
The only clue to the river's position was that it was "Between Berœa  and Thessalonica." During the past few decades there have been many attempts to identify which modern river can claim to be Ælian's Astræus, but this research has been difficult and from a reading of published work it is still not clear which river it might be.
