Gentinos (Ancient Greek: Γεντῖνος) was a town in ancient Troad.[1] The inhabitants of Gentinos are cited in the tribute records of Athens between the years 452/1 and 444/3 BCE, so the city was part of the Delian League.[2] Gentinos minted bronze coins inscribed «ΓΕΝ» or «ΓΕΝΤΙ».[2]

Its site is tentatively located near Ballı Dağ, Asiatic Turkey.[3][4]
