Eth. URCI (Plin. Nat. 3.3. s. 4; Οὔρκη, Ptol. 2.6.14), a town of the Bastetani in Hispania Tarraconensis, on the borders of Baetica, or according to another boundary line, which makes the latter reach as far as Barca, in Baetica itself, on a bay named after it, and on the road from Castulo to Malaca. (Mela, 2.6, where the editions incorrectly have Urgi and Virgi; Itin. Ant. p. 404.) Variously identified with Abruceña, Puerto de Aguilas, and Alsoduz. Ukert, however (ii. pt. i. p. 352), would seek it in the neighbourhood of Almeria.
