History: Obulco, a Roman municipium of Hispania Baetica (Andalusia), now called Porcuna, a town of some note between Cordova and Gienna. Its coins which are autonomous, bear for their types generally a female head, sometimes a horseman, at others a bull, and the word OBVLCO, with the names of Roman duumvirs, and Celtiberian inscriptions.
