Tarraco

Tarraco is the ancient name of the current city of Tarragona. It was the oldest Roman settlement on the Iberian Peninsula, it became the capital of the Roman province of Hispania Citerior during the period of the Roman Republic, of Hispania Tarraconensis following the latter's creation during the Roman Empire. In 2000, the archaeological ensemble of Tarraco was declared a World heritage site by UNESCO; the municipality was inhabited in pre-Roman times by Iberians who had commercial contacts with the Greeks and Phoenicians who settled on the coast. The Iberian colonies were located in the Ebro Valley. Evidence of Iberian colonies in the municipality of Tarragona has been dated to the 5th century BC. References in the literature to the presence of Iberians in Tarraco are ambiguous. Livy mentions an oppidum parvum called Polybius talks about a polis called Kissa. Tarraco is mentioned for first time shortly after the arrival of Gnaeus Cornelius Scipio Calvus at Empúries in 218 BC at the start of the Second Punic War which began the Roman conquest of Hispania.

Livy writes that the Romans conquered a field of Punic supplies for Hannibal's troops near Cissis and took the city. A short time the Romans were attacked "not far from Tarraco", but it remains unclear whether Tarraco were the same city. A coin found in Empúries bears the inscription Tarakon-salir; the coin, engraved in keeping with other Empúries models at an undisclosed location, is dated to 250 BC before the arrival of the Romans. The name Kesse appears on coins of Iberian origin from the 1st and 2nd century BC that were marked according to Roman weight standards. Kesse may be equated with the place of origin of the Cissisians mentioned by Pliny. In 217 BC reinforcements arrived from Italy under the command of Publius Scipio, he and his brother Gnaeus Cornelius are attributed with the fortification of Tarraco and the establishment of a military port, as Pliny the Elder said: Tarraco Scipionum opus, Tarraco was work by the Scipios as Carthage was by the Carthaginians; the Roman city wall was constructed on top of the more ancient wall characteristic of the Iberian stonemason.

After the death of the Scipio brothers, Tarraco was 25-year-old Scipio Africanus's winter base between 211 and 210, where he met the tribes of Hispania in conventus. The population was loyal to the Romans during the war. Livy called them allies and friends of the Roman people and the fishermen of Tarraco served with their boats during the siege of Carthago Nova; the conquest of the Iberian Peninsula by the Romans took over 200 years. During the following two centuries Tarraco remained a supply and winter base camp during the wars against the Celtiberians, as it was during the Second Punic War. There was therefore a strong military presence during this period in the highest area of what is the city's historic quarter, called the Part Alta. In 197 BC, all of the conquered areas narrow strips along the coast of Spain, were divided between the new provinces of Hispania Ulterior and Hispania Citerior; the capital of Hispania Citerior was principally Carthago Nova but Strabo says that the governors resided in Tarraco.

The legal status of Tarraco is not clear. It was organized as conventus civium Romanorum during the Republic, with two magistri at its head. Gaius Porcius Cato, consul in the year 114 BC, chose Tarraco as the place of his exile in the year 108, indicating that Tarraco was a free city or an ally at that time. According to Strabo, one of the "most recent" of the Roman battles took place not far from Tarraco; when Caesar conquered supporters of Pompey in 49 BC in Ilerda, Tarraco supported his army with food. It is not clear whether Tarraco received the status of colony at the hand of Julius Caesar or Augustus, but current research tends to assume, the former who granted it after his victory in Munda, around the year 45BC, reflected in the epithet Iulia in its formal name: Colonia Iulia Urbs Triumphalis Tarraco, which would remain for the duration of the Empire. In 27 BC, Emperor Augustus went to Spain to monitor the campaigns in Cantabria. However, due to his poor health he preferred to stay in Tarraco.

Augustus had built an altar in the city, a story by the rhetorician Quintilian mentions that the inhabitants of Tarraco complained to Augustus that a palm tree had grown on the altar. He replied that would mean it was not used often. Soon after he arrived the old via Herculea became the Via Augusta. A milestone, found in Tarragona's Plaça de Braus, mentions the road between 12 and 6 BC, leading to Barcino to the north-east and Dertosa, Saguntum and to the south; the city flourished under Augustus. The writer Pomponius Mela describes it in the 1st century AD as follows: "Tarraco is the richest port on this coast". Tarraco under Augustus and Tiberius minted its own coins with depictions of the imperial cult and the inscription CVT, CVTT o CVTTAR. After the death of Augustus in the year 14 AD, the emperor was deified and in 15 AD a temple was erected in his honour in the eastern-most neighbourhood of the city or near the Colonial Forum, as mentioned by Tacitus in his annales. In 68 AD Galba, who lived in Tarraco for eight years, was proclaimed emperor in Clunia Sulpicia.

Vespasian began a reorganization of the precarious finances of the state. According to Pliny, this allowed Latin citizenship to be granted to the inhabitants of Hisp
