ULIA

ULIA (Οὐλία, Strab. iii. p.141), a town in Hispania Baetica, on a hill, on the road from Gades to Corduba. (Itin. Ant. p. 412.) It was a Roman municipium, with the surname of Fidentia, and belonged to the jurisdiction of Corduba (Plin. Nat. 3.3. s. 4; Hirt. B. H. 3, 4, B. Alex. 61; D. C. 43.31.) From inscriptions it appears to be the present Monte Mayor, where there are ruins. (Cf. Morales, Ant. p. 5; Florez, Esp. Sagr. x. p. 150, xii. p. 5; coins in Florez, Med. ii. p. 620, iii. p. 130; Mionnet, i. p. 27, Suppl. i. p. 47.)
