UNSINGIS

UNSINGIS according to a reading in Tacitus (Tac. Ann. 1.70), a river in the north-west of Germany; but the correct reading in that passage is ad Amisiam, as Ritter has shown in his note upon it, Unsingin being only a conjecture of Alting manufactured out of the modern name of a river called Unse or Hunse.
