SI´CORIS (Σίκορις, D. C. 41.20), a tributary river of the Iberus in Hispania Tarraconensis. It rose in the Pyrenees in the territory of the Cerretani, and separated the countries of the Ilergetes and Lacetani. It flowed past Ilerda, and according to Vibius Sequester (p. 224, ed. Bipont) bore the name of that town. A little afterwards it received the Cinga, and then flowed into the Iberus near Octogesa. (Caes. B.C. 1.40, 48; Plin. Nat. 3.3. s. 4; Lucan 4.13, seq.) Ausonius describes it as flowing impetuously ( “torrentem,” Epist. 25.59). Now the Segre.
