Line travelled by river (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

nile

'river' is the definition.
(Nile River is an example)

'line travelled' is the wordplay.
'travelled' indicates an anagram.
'line' is an anagram of 'NILE'.

'by' is the link.

(Other definitions for nile that I've seen before include "Take a line to the river" , "Egypt's river" , "Long river" , "Cleopatra's river" , "Line (anag)" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
