INCRIO´NES

Eth. INCRIO´NES (Ἰγκρίωνες), a tribe of the Sigambri, mentioned only by Ptolemy (2.11. §. 9). They apparently occupied the southernmost part of the territory inhabited by the Sigambri. Some believe them to be the same as the Juhones of Tacitus (Tac. Ann. 13.57), in whose territory an extensive conflagration of the soil occurred in A.D. 59,. Some place them near the mouth of the river Lahn and the little town of Engers; while others, with less probability, regard Ingersheim, on the Neckar, as the place once inhabited by the Incriones.
