KAIKINOS (Caicinus) was a river-god of Bruttium in southern Italy.
The River Kaikinos had its headwaters in the Sila Mountains and entered the Mediterranean Sea between the towns of Rhegium and Lokroi (Locri). The most important neighbouring rivers were the Krataeis (Crataïs) of Bruttium, and Symaithos (Symaethus) of the nearby island of Sikelia (Sicily).

CLASSICAL LITERATURE QUOTES
Pausanias, Description of Greece 6. 6. 4 (trans. Jones) (Greek travelogue C2nd A.D.) :
"Euthymos [who won a boxing contest at the Olympics] was by birth one of the Italian Lokrians (Locri) . . . Local legend, however, makes him the son . . . of the river Kaikinos (Caicinus) which divides Lokris (Locri) from the land of Rhegion (Rhegium) and produces the marvel of the grasshoppers. For the grasshoppers within Lokris as far as the Kaikinos sing just like others, but across the Kaikinos in the territory of Rhegion they do not utter a sound."
