Source: Vedic index of Names and Subjects

Śutudrī (शुतुद्री), twice mentioned in the Ṛgveda, is the name of the most easterly river of the Panjab, the modern Sutlej, the Zaradros of Ptolemy and Arrian. In the post-Vedic period the name of this river appears transformed to Śatadru (‘flowing in a hundred channels’). The Sutlej has changed its course very considerably within historical times.
