Νάρυξ), Narycus (Νάρυκος), or Narycium (Ναρύκιον). A town of the Locri Opuntii, on the Euboean Sea, described as the birthplace of Aias, son of Oïleus, who is hence called Narycius heros. Since Locri Epizephyrii, in the south of Italy, claimed to be a colony from Naryx, in Greece, we find the town of Locri called Narycia by the poets, and the pitch of Bruttium was also named Narycia (Verg. Aen. iii. 399).
