(Coca) Segovia, Spain.
A site in
Tarraconensis 59 km from Segovia on the way to Valladolid. According to Pliny, it was a city of the Vaccaei
3.3.26); it is also cited in Ptolemy (2.6.50) and
. 51.89). It was the birthplace of Theodosius I (Zosimus 4.24). There have been no excavations, and the only finds from the Roman period are two inscriptions (CIL
II, 2727-28), the first of them on an
Iberian stone pig. However, the antiquity of the settlement is confirmed by the finding of a bronze jug of the
Hispano-Punic type, abundant in the S of the peninsula
and related to the culture of Tartessos.
