Bu'rsio

a cognomen of the Julia gens, which is known only from coins. There is a large number, of which the following is a specimen, bearing on the reverse the inscription L. IVLI. BVRSIO, with Victory in a four-horse chariot. The head on the obverse has occasioned great dispute among writers on coins: on account of its wings and the trident, it may perhaps be intended to represent Ocean. (Eckhel, v. p. 227, &c.)
