Click for a larger photo
In order to force Hannibal to retreat from Italy, Scipio Africanus attacked Carthaginian Spain and took Carthago Nova in 209 B.C. References most often identify this type as Punic, struck before 209 B.C., but they also note that the head is "Roman style." Some authorities believe, as we do, that this type may have been struck after 209, under Roman rule. Carthaginian coins sometimes depicted Barcid generals. This coin possibly depicts the Roman general Scipio Africanus.

Malaka (today Málaga in Andalusia, Spain) was founded by Phoenicians from Tyre, c. 770 B.C. The name was likely derived from the Phoenician word for salt referring to salting of fish near the harbor.
