TURIASO (Τουριασώ and Τουριασσώ, Ptol. 2.6.58; Turiasson, Geogr. Rav. 4.43: Eth. Turiasonensis, Plin. Nat. 3.3. s. 4), a town of the Celtiberi in Hispania Tarraconensis, on the road from Caesaraugusta to Numantia (Itin. Ant. pp. 442, 443). According to Pliny (l.c.) it was a civitas Romana in the jurisdiction of Caesaraugusta. A fountain in its neighbourhood was said to have the quality of hardening iron (Id. 34.14. s. 41). The town is now called Tarrazona. For coins see Florez, Med. ii. p. 600, iii. p. 124; Mionnet, i. p. 53, and Suppl. i. p. 167; Sestini p. 207.
