In all likelihood the Pallia was originally drawn as a short tributary flowing into the Tiber, and a copyist mistakenly extended its course to the sea, thus transforming it into a branch flowing out of the Tiber. Its source - however this was shown originally - is now missing. River #8 in Africa may provide a comparable example of such misplaced initiative.
