In 206 BC African Scipio created a war veterans colony in Spain, the first located outside the Apennine Peninsula. The colony named Italica was to promote Roman culture to the neighboring Iberian tribes, in the hope that they will adopt Roman way of life.
Several hundred years later, Italica fulfilled her hopes. Is the birthplace of such emperors as Trajan, Hadrian, and at the end of the Empire – Theodosius the Great.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM is in process of translation over 3300 Polish articles about history of ancient Rome. If you have the opportunity to financially support the further translations – even with smaller amount – I will be very grateful.
