Ulai (Yoo┬┤li)

A river in the Babylonian province of Elam beside which Daniel saw himself in a vision (Dan 8:2). Of the three streams near Susa (Shushan), the capital city of Babylonia, the Eulaeus is probably the one referred to. It flows near Susa before joining the Chospes River.

Dan 8:2

2In the vision I was looking and saw myself in Susa the capital, in the province of Elam, and I was by the river Ulai.
