Noricoi, a province of the Roman empire, in S. E. Germany, bounded N. by the Danube, E. by Mt. Cetius (now Wiener Wald), which separated it from Pannonia, S. by the Savus (Save) and the Carnic Alps, and W. by the (Enus (Inn), which separated it from Vinde-licia and Rhaetia. It thus comprised most of the modern provinces of Upper and Lower Austria and Styria, the whole of Carinthia, and parts of Carniola, Salzburg, and Bavaria. The most important range of mountains was the Noric Alps, in the neighborhood of Salzburg, where excellent iron was mined; gold is also said to have been found. The chief towns were: Noreia or Noreja (Neumarkt in Styria), the capital of the Taurisci or Norici before the Roman conquest, and the place where Carbo was routed by the Cimbri in 113 B. C.; Juva-vum or Juvavia (Salzburg), a colony of Hadrian, on the Juvavus (Salzach); Lentia (Linz), on the Danube; and Lauriacum (Lorch), at the mouth of the Anisus (Enns). Noricum was conquered by the Romans toward the close of the reign of Augustus, and at a later period was divided into two provinces: Noricum Ripense, adjoining the Danube, and Noricum Mediterraneum, S. of the former.
