NOEGA (Νοίγα), a small city of the Astures, in Hispania Tarraconensis. It was seated on the coast, not far from the river Melsus, and from an estuary which formed the boundary between the Astures and Cantabri, in the neighbourhood of the present Gijon. Hence Ptolemy (2.6.6), who gives it the additional name of Ucesia (Νοιγαουκεσία), places it in the territory of the Cantabri. (Strab. iii. p.167; Mela, 3.1; Plin. iv, 20. s. 34.)
