Roman Hispania, Hacksilver Lot of 12 Cut Silver Coin Fragments, c. Before 50 B.C.
Hacksilver lot of 12 cut silver coin fragments, reputedly all found in southern Spain. One Carthago Nova, cut 1/5 or 1/4 portion of a Hannibal shekel, 1.43g, cf. SNG BM 106 - 109, rare.

Carthago Nova, Iberia, c. 237 - 206 B.C.
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.SH90611.

Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D., Italica, HispaniaBaetica
Italica, HispaniaBaetica was the birthplace of Trajan and Hadrian. The native Iberian town of Turdetani was refounded in 206 B.C. as Italica by Scipio Africanus to settle his victorious veterans from the Second Punic War and to control the area. The name reflected the veterans' Italian origins. Italica thrived, especially under Hadrian, who favored his birthplace. Hadrian expanded the city and elevated it to the status of colonia as ColoniaAelia Augusta Italica. He also added temples, including the enormous and unique Trajaneum in the center of the city to venerate his predecessor and adopted father, and rebuilt public buildings. The city started to dwindle as early as the 3rd century; a shift of the Guadalquivir River bed, probably due to silting, a widespread problem in antiquity that followed removal of the forest cover, left Italica's river port high and dry whilst Hispalis continued to grow nearby. The city may have been the birthplace of the emperor Theodosius I. Italica was important enough in late Antiquity to have a bishop of its own. The modern town of Santiponce overlies the pre-Roman Iberian settlement and part of the well-preserved Roman city.RP85963.
