OI´SPORIS (Οἰσπορίς, Ptol. 4.3.14; Opirus, Peut. Tab.; Ἔπηρος, Stadiasm. § 86), a town of the Greater Syrtis, which Barth (Wanderungen, pp. 368, 378) identifies with Liman Naim, where there is a sandy bay into which ships might send their boats, with almost all winds, for water, at three wells, situated near the beech. (Beechey, Exped. to N. Coast of Africa, p. 173.) The tower, of which the Coast-describer speaks, must be the ruins at Râs Eski, to the E. of Naim.
