HIPPOCU´RA (Ἱππόκουροα, Ptol. 7.1.6, 8.26.15), a town of some importance in India intra Gangem, in the district called Ariaca. It was situated on or near the Nanaguna, and appears from another passage of Ptolemy to have been the seat of the palace of a king, whom he calls Baleocarus (7.1.83). It has been conjectured by Forbiger that it is the same as the modern Hydrabad, and, with less probability by Ritter, that it is represented by Bangalore (v. p. 487).
