Erines (Ancient Greek: Ἐρινε͂ς) or Erine (Ἐρινε͂) was a town of ancient Caria, probably on the Bodrum Peninsula. Erines appears in the Athenian tribute lists and paid an annual tribute of 68 drachmae, 5 obol.[1] It also appears on numerous ancient inscriptions.[2]

The editors of the Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World treat it as unlocated but probably near Theangela.[3] Others locate its site near Hisarönü, Asiatic Turkey, at the head of the gulf opposite the Greek island of Syme.[4][5]
