Historical background


SPAIN - SUSSETANOS - BOLSKAN (OSCA/HUESCA) (Province of Huesca)

(2nd century BC)

Bolskan corresponds to modern Huesca, the Osca of the Romans. The city played a big role in the provincial history after the Roman conquest, in particular at the time of the revolt of Sertorius, Roman general, born in Nursia c. 123 BC and died in Spain in 72 BC. J. -C. First lieutenant of Marius, he carved out a real state for himself in Spain. Winner of Pompey, he allied himself with Mithridates but was assassinated by his lieutenant Perpenna. A denarius of Domitius Calvinus was minted in Huesca in 39 BC, imitating and copying for the right the Celtiberian denarii.
