SEGOBRI´GA (Σεγόβριγα, Ptol. 2.6.58).


1.

The capital of the Celtiberi in Hispania Tarraconensis. (Plin. Nat. 3.3. s. 4.) It lay SW. of Caesaraugusta, and in the jurisdiction of Carthago Nova. (Plin. l.c.) The surrounding district was celebrated for its talc or selenite. (Id. 36.22. s. 45.) It must have been in the neighbourhood of Priego, where, near Pennaescrite, considerable ruins are still to be found. (Florez, Esp. Sagr. vii. p. 61.) For coins see Sestini, i. p. 193. (Cf. Strab. iii. p.162; Front. Strat. 3.10. 6.)


2.

A town of the Edetani in Hispania Tarraconensis, known only from inscriptions and coins, the modern Segorbe. (Florez, Esp. Sagr. v. p. 21, viii. p. 97, and Med. pp. 573, 650; Mionnet, i. p. 50, and Supp. i. p. 102.)
