ORA (Ὄρα), a place mentioned by Ptolemy (6.8.14) in Carmania, but apparently on the confines of Gedrosia. It seems not improbable that he has confounded it with Orae, or Oraea, which was certainly in the latter province. Strabo (xv. p.723) and Arrian (6.24) both apparently quoting from the same authority, speak of a place of this name in Gedrosia,--the capital, probably, of the Oritae.
