, Roman Occupation, Africanus, c. 209 - 206 B.C.
In order to force Hannibal to retreat from Italy, Africanus attacked Carthaginian Spain and took in 209 B.C. References most often identify this as Punic, struck before 209 B.C., but they also note that the head is "Roman ." Some authorities believe, as we do, that this was struck after 209, under Roman rule. Carthaginian coins sometimes depicted Barcid generals. This coin possibly depicts the Roman general Africanus.
