URSO

URSO (Οὔρσων, Strab. iii. p.141), a strong mountain town in Hispania Baetica, the last refuge of the Pompeians. It was a Roman colony, with the surname of Genua Urbanorum, and was under the jurisdiction of Astigi. (Plin. Nat. 3.1. s 3; Hirt. B. H. 26. 41, 65; Appian, App. Hann. 16.) It is the modern Osuña, where some inscriptions and ruins have been found. (Cf. Muratori, p. 1095; Florez, Esp. Sagr. x. p. 77.) For coins of Urso, see Florez, Med. ii. p. 624, iii. p. 130; Mionnet, i. p. 28, Suppl. i. p. 47; Sestini, p. 94.
