GRACCURRIS (Eth. Graccuritanus: near Corella), a town of the Vascones, in Hispania Tarraconensis, on the great road from Asturica to Tarraco, 64 M. P. west of Caesaraugusta. Its former name, Ilurcis, was changed in honour of Sempronius Gracchus, [p. 1.1010]who placed new settlers in it, after his conquest of Celtiberia. It belonged to the conventus of Caesaraugusta, and was a municipium, with the civitas Romana. (Liv. Fr. xii., Epit. xii., comp. Freinsh. Supply, Liv. 12.4: Festus, s.v. Plin. Nat. 3.3. s. 4; Itin. Ant. p. 450; Coins ap. Florez, Med. de Esp. vol. ii. p. 448; Mionnet, vol. i. p. 44, Suppl. vol. i, p. 88; Sestini, p. 52; Eckhel, vol. i. p. 50; Ukert. vol. ii pt. 1. p. 448.)
