Eth. ARGYRI´NI (Eth. Ἀργυρῖνοι), an Epirote people dwelling on the Ceraunian mountains, whose name is probably preserved in Arghyrókastro, a place near the river Dhryno, and a few miles south of the junction of this river with the Aous. Cramer, following Meletius and Mannert, erroneously suppose Arghyrókastro to represent the site of Antigoneia. (Lycophr. 1017; Steph. B. sub voce Ἀργυρῖνοι; Cramer's Greece, vol. i. p. 98; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. i. p. 78; comp. ANTIGONEIA; AOUS.)
