Ufens is a character in Virgil's The Aeneid as well as Silius' Punica. According to The Aeneid:

"Next Ufens, mountain-bred, from Nersae came
to join the war; of goodly fame was he
for prosperous arms: his Aequian people show
no gentle mien, but scour the woods for prey,
or, ever-armed, across the stubborn glebe
compel the plough; though their chief pride and joy
are rapine, violence, and plundered store."[This quote needs a citation]

In The Aeneid, Ufens was killed by Gyas; however, in the Punica, "Ufens is carried off by an elephant after being skewered by a bayonet fastened to his tusk".[This quote needs a citation]
