Carthago Nova, Tarraconensis, Hispania, c. 27 B.C. - 14 A.D.
|Carthago|, |Carthago| |Nova,| |Tarraconensis,| |Hispania,| |c.| |27| |B.C.| |-| |14| |A.D.|, The magistrates are quinquennial duumvirs P. Turullius and Postumus Albinus (for the 2nd time). In 30/29 B.C., the Koinon of Asia and Bithynia requested permission to honor Augustus as a living god. "Republican" Rome despised the worship of a living man, but an outright refusal might offend their loyal allies. A cautious formula was drawn up, non-Romans could only establish a cult for divus Augustus jointly with dea Roma. Most references date this type to the reign of Augustus but some to early in the reign of Tiberius.
