ORIPPO a town of Hispania Baetica, on the road from Gades to Hispalis. (Plin. Nat. 3.1. s. 3; Itin. Ant. p. 410.) Commonly identified with Villa de dos Hermaños, though some have mentioned Alcala de Guadaira and Torre de los Herberos. Ancient coins of the place have a bunch of grapes, showing that the neighbourhood was rich in wines, a character which it still preserves. (Caro,--Ant. 3.20; Florez, Esp. Sagr. ix. p. 111, Med. ii. p. 512; Mionnet, i. p. 23, Suppl. i. p. 39; Sestini, Med. p. 77.)
