The City and the Coin in the Ancient and Early Medieval Worlds

Edited by Fernando López Sánchez



[05/12/2012]

Most coin issues from Carthago Nova may be linked to deductiones of Roman veterans. Discharged soldiers were settled in Roman colonies or municipia in especial ceremonies, which in the case of CarthagoNova were conducted by the duoviri quinquennales, who appear on almost every one of the city’s coin issues. Most of the veterans settled in Carthago Nova served in the imperial fleet of Missenum and took part in a number of military campaigns in the period between 31 BC and 41 AD. The coin issues depicting military and religious motifs (RPC1 149, RPC1 162-164, RPC1 174-177, and RPC1 157, 169, 172-174) form the main focus of this article and some of these will be reclassified in chronological terms, with reference to commonly-used reference catalogues.
