Spain Tarraconaise, Caesaraugusta Zaragoza (25 avant J.-C. - 14 après J.-C.)

The colony was founded by Auguste Caesaraugusta and established on the Ebro near the Celtiberian oppidum Salduba with contingents of veterans of the fourth, sixth and tenth legions. The imperial coinage does not begin until 19-18 AC. For the currencies of the city, the start of production may be between 25 and 15 AC.
