Carthago (near Tunis, Tunisia)

The mint of Carthage struck coins during the tetrarchy, being opened during a military campaign of Maximianus. Maxentius moved it to Ostia. Shortly after the mint was re-opened by the usurper Domitius Alexander, striking crude coins from dies obviosuly cut by ad-hoc workers. Carthage struck coins again under the Vandals. Dates of operation: 296 - 307 and 308. Mintmarks: PK. The name KART or KARTHAGO is mentioned in the reverse legend.

In Roman religion, every man has a genius, a presiding spirit. In De Die Natali, Censorinus says, from the moment we are born, we live under the guard and tutelage of Genius. Cities, organizations, and peoples also had a genius. On coins, we find inscriptions to the Genius of the Roman people, of the Senate, of the Emperor, etc. This coin is dedicated "to the Genius (guardian spirits) of our emperors and caesars."
