Chapter Summary

Cabra is a town in the south of the province of Córdoba. It has a long history, playing an important role in prehistoric times, through the Roman Empire, as a bishopric in the Visigothic church, as an administrative centre in al-Andalus, and to the present. The town seems to be thought to have had several names, or the same name in several forms. The name of the town of Cabra in Roman times was undoubtedly Igabrum. Subsequently, the form Egabrum came to be preferred by the Visigoths. The Romans? name for the town, Igabrum, is likely to have had paroxytone stress on the penultimate syllable: that is, [i-gá-brum].
