AURINX a city in the S. of Hispania, not far from Munda (Liv. 24.42); doubtless the same place as Oringis, on the confines of the Melesses, which Hasdrubal made his head quarters against Scipio, B.C. 207. It was at that time the most wealthy city of the district, and had a fertile territory, and silver mines worked by the natives. (Liv. 28.3.) Pliny mentions it, with a slight difference of form, Oningis, among the oppida stipendiaria of the conventus Astigitanus. (Liv. 3.1. s. 3.) Ukert places it between Monclova and Ximena de la Frontera (vol. ii. pt. 1. p. 359).
