Carthage - A settlement in Proconsularis
Carthage was the centre or capital city of the ancient Carthaginian civilization, on the eastern side of the Lake of Tunis in what is now Tunisia.

The ancient city was destroyed by the Roman Republic in the Third Punic War in 146 BC then re-developed as Roman Carthage, which became the major city of the Roman Empire in the province of Africa.

The mint of Carthage struck coins during the tetrarchy, being opened during a military campaign of Maximianus. Maxentius moved it to Ostia. Shortly after the mint was re-opened by the usurper Domitius Alexander, striking crude coins from dies obviosuly cut by ad-hoc workers. Carthage struck coins again under the Vandals.
