The Deis Paphresis (Dethric ['ðeis pa'fresis]) is a strait separating the continents of Eresphria on the north and Canthres on the south, in the process linking the Artya and the As am Iraph. The considerable width of the strait, as well as the deep seabed of the Artya on its east, means that in its vicinity the sea surface is generally calm and conducive for trade and other nautical activity. The strait is and has been an important conduit for human and material movement; it was the route by which humans, having first settled Eresphria from Marcasia, spread to Canthres. In modern times, the strait is a major node for transport between the two continents: no fewer than six port cities are situated within 50km of its shores.
