Historical background

Indigetes - EMPORIA / UNTIKESKEN (Girona - Ampurias)

(First century BC)

The Greek Emporion the Ampurias Roman (Empùries in Catalan), today San Martin de Ampurias was founded around 580 BC, perhaps by colonists from Rhodes as Rosas (Rhode) or Phoenicians as Marseille which foundations are contemporary. It was one of the most important of the Western Mediterranean ports. The Celtiberian name was Untikesken Emporia. After native emissions, the city adopted the Latin alphabet. The mint is late, between Caesar and Augustus. Emporia seems to have received the "municipium", when Augustus travel 27 or 25 BC For the authors of RPC, this right may already have been granted to him by Caesar, and only confirmed by Augustus. As a very important number was countermarked (cf., PRC. Op. Cit p. 106-107.).
