This chapter analyzes the lex Ursonensis, the city charter from Urso, modern Osuna. The city charter from Urso informs us that the colony was founded at the behest of the dictator Caesar; and that, following resolutions of the Senate and the popular assembly, its foundation was confirmed by a lex Antonia promulgated by Mark Antony. The discussions cover the structure of the lex Irnitana and lex Ursonensis; and the jurisdictional and procedural provisions of the lex Ursonensis.

Keywords:   Roman law, city charters, Urso, lex Ursonensis, lex Irnitana, jurisdictional provisions
