Roman Provincial Coins of Hispania

Hispania was the Roman name for the Iberian Peninsula and its provinces. Roman armies invaded the Iberian peninsula in 218 B.C. and used it as a training ground for officers and as a proving ground for tactics during campaigns against the Carthaginians, the Iberians, the Lusitanians, the Gallaecians and other Celts. It was not until 19 B.C. that Augustus was able to complete the conquest. Under the Roman Republic, Hispania was divided into two provinces: Hispania Citerior and Hispania Ulterior. During the Principate, Hispania Ulterior was divided into two new provinces, Baetica and Lusitania, while Hispania Citerior was renamed Hispania Tarraconensis. Subsequently, the western part of Tarraconensis was split off, first as Hispania Nova, later renamed "Callaecia" (or Gallaecia, whence modern Galicia). From Diocletian's Tetrarchy (A.D. 284) onwards, the south of remaining Tarraconensis was again split off as Carthaginensis, and probably then too the Balearic Islands and all the resulting provinces formed one civil diocese under the vicarius for the Hispaniae (that is, the Celtic provinces).

Carmo, Hispania Ulterior, c. 200 - 150 B.C.

|Hispania|, |Carmo,| |Hispania| |Ulterior,| |c.| |200| |-| |150| |B.C.||AE| |33|
Carmo, Hispania Ulterior (modern Carmona), is 33 km east of Seville. It belonged to the Turduli tribe and appears to have been a municipium, appearing in Agrippa's account as oppidum civium romanorum or latinorum. Surprisingly, while Caesar called it one of the most important towns in Baetica, it is not mentioned by Mela and Pliny. Its early remains are buried in the area extending from the present Ayuntamiento to the Plaza de Abastos, where there is a large dolmen. Some graves from the Carthaginian period, with rich grave goods, have been discovered. The name of a certain Urbanibal, of Carthaginian descent, who lived during the Roman period, is preserved on a funeral urn discovered in the Roman cemetery and today in the Carmona museum. Remains of the Roman period include part of the wall, a large temple, the Roman cemetery containing underground tombs, and an amphitheater which is partly cut out of the rock and dates from the last quarter of the 1st century B.C. Sculptures and inscriptions have been found in the town and in the necropolis.

Sejanus, Pretorian Prefect of Tiberius, Damnatio Memoriae, Bibilis, Spain, 31 A.D.

Under Augustus, Bilbilis was given the status of Municipium becoming Augusta Bilbilis and thus enjoyed many privileges under Roman law, including bestowing Roman citizenship on all its inhabitants. Coins were minted in the city under Augustus, Tiberius and Caligula with "Augusta Bilbilis" on the reverse along with the governor's name. One type struck under Tiberius, named Lucius Aelius Sejanus as consul on the reverse. The town must have flourished with Sejanus as benefactor, but was ultimately hurt with his demise when he was proved to be a traitor. All Sejanus' statues and monuments were subject to "damnatio memoriae." His name was even removed from coins, as seen on this example.Bilbilis

Caesaraugusta is today Zaragoza, Spain. It began as Salduie, a village settled by the Sedetani, an Iberian tribe. Augustus founded Caesaraugusta on the site to settle army veterans from the Cantabrian wars. The city did not decline significantly during the last centuries of the Roman Empire and was captured peacefully by the Goths in the 5th century.
