Arin was a Yeniseian language spoken in Russia along the Yenisei River between Yeniseysk and Krasnoyarsk. It is classified as a Southern Yeniseian language, along with Kott and Assan.

It is believed that the term Ar or Ara was used by speakers of Arin to refer to themselves. It became extinct in the 18th Century.[2]
