ORE´TUM GERMANO´RUM (Ὤρητον Γερμανῶν, Ptol. 2.6.59). Germani was another name for the Oretani ( “Oretani, qui et Germani nominantur,” Plin. Nat. 3.3. s. 4), and Oretum was one of their towns; probably the Orisia of Artemidorus, quoted by Steph. B. sub voce (s. v.), and the Oria of Strabo (iii. p.152). It has been identified with Granatula, a village near Almagro, where there is a hermitage still called De Oreto, and close by several ruins, a Roman bridge, &c. (Morales, Ant. p. 8b., p. 76a.; Florez, Esp. S. vii. p. 255; Ukert, vol. ii. pt. 1. p. 152.) [T.H.D] [p. 2.492]
