The Roman general Scipio Africanus conquered it in 209 BC and renamed it as Carthago Nova (literally "New New City") to distinguish it from the mother city.
The city was very relevant both in the Carthaginian and the Roman conquest of the Iberian Peninsula. It remained important until it was sacked by the Vandals in 435 AD.

The heads on the reverse are Nero Julius Caesar and Drusus Caesar, both sons of Germanicus, and adopted sons of Tiberius. Tiberius made it apparent that they were to succeed him, since his natural son "Drusus Julius Caesar" had died in 23 AD. History had other plans in mind of course.
The reverse translates to " Nero and Drusus, Caesars, Quinquennial (Duumvirs) of the Victorious Colony Julia Nova Carthago"
