Urima or Ourima, also known as Antiochia ad Euphratem and Arulis, was a town on the Euphrates River of Classical Anatolia, inhabited from Hellenistic to Byzantine times.[1] It was in the late Roman province of Euphratensis.[2] Urima was the seat of a bishop; no longer a residential bishopric, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[3]

Its site is located near Horum Hüyük, in a now-submerged portion of Gaziantep Province in Asiatic Turkey.[1][2]
