Byzantine Carthage (c. 533 - 695)

The Carthage mint reopened in 533 or 534 after Justinian's conquests. Carthage was lost to the Arabs, c 695.

|Justinian| |I|, |Byzantine| |Empire,| |Justinian| |I,| |4| |April| |527| |-| |14| |November| |565| |A.D.||decanummium|
In 541 A.D. the Plague of Justinian (Bubonic plague) appeared suddenly in the Egyptian port of Pelusium, spread to Alexandria and, the following year, to Constantinople. This was the beginning of a 200-year-long pandemic that devastated Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.

Carthage, Punic Sardinia, c. 216 - 215 B.C.

|Carthage|, |Carthage,| |Punic| |Sardinia,| |c.| |216| |-| |215| |B.C.||AE| |18|
This scarce type was issued by Carthaginian forces that landed on Roman ruled Sardinia during the 2nd Punic War. Soon after the start of the Second Punic War between Carthage and Rome, fought from 218 to 201 B.C., the Carthaginian general Hannibal marched over the Alps, invaded Italy, and scored great victories at Lake Trasimene and Cannae. The Romans adopted the Fabian strategy - avoiding battle against Hannibal and defeating his allies and the other Carthaginian generals instead. Scipio Africanus finally defeated Hannibal in 202 B.C., victory put Rome in control of the western Mediterranean and much of Spain.

Carthage, Zeugitana, North Africa, c. 221 - 210 B.C.

|Carthage|, |Carthage,| |Zeugitana,| |North| |Africa,| |c.| |221| |-| |210| |B.C.||AE| |20|
The Second Punic War, 218 - 202 B.C., is marked by Hannibal's surprising crossing of the Alps and crushing victories over Roman armies in the battles of the Trebia, Trasimene, and Cannae. Despite these and other setbacks, Roman forces recaptured the major cities that had joined the enemy, defeated attempts to reinforce Hannibal, and ended Carthaginian rule over Iberia. At the final showdown, the battle of Zama in Africa, Scipio Africanus defeated Hannibal, resulting in harsh peace terms. Carthage ceased to be a major power and became a Roman client-state.
