LAMI´NIUM (Λαμίνιον: Eth. Laminitani: near Fuenllana, between Montiel and Alcaraz), a town of the Carpetani (according to Ptolemy, though some suppose it to have belonged rather to the Oretani), in Hispania Tarraconensis. It was a stipendiary town of the conventus of New Carthage, and stood on the high road from Emerita to Caesaraugusta. The river ANAS (Guadiana) rose in the lands of Laminium, 7 M. P. E. of the town. (Plin. Nat. 3.1. s. 2, 3. s. 4; Ilin. Ant. pp. 445, 446; Ptol 2.6.57; Inscr. ap. Florez, Esp. S. vol. iv. p. 38, vol. v. pp. 22, 122, vol. vii. p. 140; Ukert, vol. ii. pt. 1. p. 411: in Plin. Nat. 36.21. s. 47, where Pliny speaks of the whetstones found in Hither Spain as Cotes Flaminitanae, Ukert supposes we ought to read Cotes Laminitanae.)
