Orsino was a leader of the Cilician pirates. During the Third Servile War, he helped secure a deal between the pirates and Spartacus and his army, but ultimately betrayed the rebellion alongside Heracleo.


Orsino was born in Cilicia sometime before 100 BC and became a member of the Cilician Pirates as a young adults. He managed many enslavements as a pirates and eventually rose up the ranks to become one of it's leaders alongside Heracleo.

In 72 BC, Orsino, Heracleo and a small band of pirates encountered Spartacus, Gannicus, Castus and a small clutch of men at the coast of Campania. While hostile towards the rebels at first, Orsino quickly realised Spartacus was in need of the pirates' services, not a fight to the death, and ordered his men to stand down. Orsino and Heracles brokered a deal with the rebel leader to bring around 2,000 rebels from the coast of Brundisium to the island of Sicily, in order for the rebels to begin a third slave rebellion on the island, in exchange for Roman denarii.
