SEGISAMA (Sasamón) Burgos, Spain.

Town NW of Burgos and NE of Castrojeriz, belonging to the Conventus Cluniensis (Plin. HN 3.26). He attributes it to the Turmodigi and distinguishes two localities, Segisamo and Segisama Julia. It was a town of the Vaccaei according to Polybios, cited in Strabo (3.4.13), and a military camp of Augustus in 26 (Florus 2.33.48). Ptolemy cites it as a town belonging to the Vaccaei and calls it Iulia, for Augustus. In the Antonine Itinerary Segisamo is between Lacobriga and Deobrigula (394.5); it is also mentioned by the Cosmographer of Ravenna (308.10; 318.2). There is an Augustan pillar mentioning the Legio IV Mac. (CIL II, 5807) and a tabula patronatus dating from A.D. 239 (CIL II, 5812).
