A descendant of Zuria named Juan Zuriena, captain of 100 men, invented an instrument when
their ammunition was exhausted in an uphill battle by King Garcia-Iñigüez de Aragon, against
infidels which took place on the banks of a river. The weapon, similar to a crossbow, used by
the soldiers to hurl pebbles extremely accurately, baffled the enemy, pushing them to
shameful flight. In memory of this event, Zuriena took the name of Segarra, a word that
means pebble; this was the original foundation of this lineage, which is widespread in most of
