ARGENTA´RIUS MONS

ARGENTA´RIUS MONS (Avien. Or. Marit. 291; Ἀργυροῦν ῎ορος, Strab. iii. p.148), that part of M. OROSPEDA in the S. of Spain in which the Baetis took its rise; so called from its silver mines. (Comp. Steph. B. sub voce Ταρτησσός; Paus. 6.19 ) Bochart (Phaley. 1.34, p. 601) agrees with Strabo in supposing that the word Orospeda had the same sense as argentarius.
