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.

Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D., Carthago Nova, Hispania Tarraconensis; Caligula Reverse

Click for a larger photo
Caligula's father Germanicus, the nephew and adopted son of Emperor Tiberius, was a successful general and one of Rome's most beloved public figures. The young Gaius was nicknamed Caligula, meaning "little soldier's boot," by his father's soldiers while accompanying him during his campaigns in Germania. When Germanicus died, his wife Agrippina the Elder became entangled in a bitter feud with Tiberius, which led to the destruction of her family, with Caligula as the sole male survivor. In 31 A.D., unscathed by the deadly intrigues, Caligula accepted Tiberius' invitation to join him on the island of Capri. In 33 A.D., Tiberius gave Caligula an honorary quaestorship. Caligula succeeded his great-uncle and adoptive grandfather in 37 A.D.

Bronze and terracotta votive feet were deposited by the afflicted in sacred springs, running waters, and shrines thought to help bring healing to injury or illnesses related to the feet. Tyriasia is an obsolete medical term for Elephantiasis (swelling), often caused by round worms. This piece was reputedly found in a stream bed in southern Spain.

Iberian Vascones, Bascunes, Iberia, c. 120 - 100 B.C.

Click for a larger photo
Although this mint has been traditionally identified as Pamplona, larger numbers of these coins have been found in Viana, Alagón and Tafalla. Only three are known to have been found in Pamplona. Pamplona was the chief town of the Vascones, and they called it Iruna, “the city.” In the winter of 75 -74 B.C., the area served as a camp for Pompey in the war against Sertorius. He is considered to be the founder of Pompaelo, which became Pamplona, in modern Spanish. Roman Pompaelo was in the province of Hispania Tarraconensis, on the road from Burdigala (modern Bordeaux) to Asturica (modern Astorga); it was a civitas stipendiaria in the jurisdiction of the conventus of Caesaraugusta (modern Zaragoza).
