Olyndicus (?-170 BC), also known as Olonicus was a celtiberian war chief who led a rebellion against Rome, fighting against the praetor Lucius Canuleyus and his troops, in the province of Hispania Ulterior. According to Florus, he was a great leader, and a cunning and daring warrior.[1]

Olyndicus was said to have behaved like a prophet and to have led his troops wielding a silver lance, sent to him by the gods from the sky.[2]
