TORYNE (Τορύνη, Plut. Ant. 62; Τορώνη, Ptol. 3.14.5), a town of Thesprotia in Epeirus, off which the fleet of Augustus was moored a short time before the battle of Actium, seems from the order of the names in Ptolemy to have stood in one of the bays between the mouth of the river Thyamis and Sybota, probably at Parga. (Leake, Northern Greece, vol. i. p. 103, vol. iii. p. 8.)
