Ting (), an administrative unit in the Qin and Han Dynasties, 10x10 li in area. The most famous former Ting leader was Liu Bang, founder of the Han Dynasty.

The Qin- and Han-era ting (亭) should not be confused with an unrelated unit, the ting (; simplified, 厅) during the Qing Dynasty. The latter is often translated as subprefecture.
