  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Euripus  \Eu*ri"pus\,  n.  [L.,  fr  Gr  ?;  ?  well  +  ?  a  rushing 
  motion.] 
  A  strait;  a  narrow  tract  of  water,  where  the  tide,  or  a 
  current,  flows  and  reflows  with  violence,  as  the  ancient 
  fright  of  this  name  between  Eub[ae]a  and  B[ae]otia.  Hence  a 
  flux  and  reflux.  --Burke.
