Main article: Economy of Hispania Before the Punic Wars, Hispania was a land with much untapped mineral and agricultural wealth, limited by the primitive subsistence economies of her native peoples outside of a few trading ports along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

    Sculptures of deer, griffins, horses, and lions were used as emblems to decorate tombs and were either placed on top of freestanding columns, as at Monforte de Cid, or displayed on tiered monuments.

A century later, taking advantage of a struggle for the throne between the Visigothic kings Agila and Athanagildthe eastern emperor Justinian I sent an army under the command of Liberius to take back the peninsula from the Visigoths.

    Court ceremonials — from Constantinople — that proclaimed the imperial sovereignty and unity of the Visigothic state were introduced at Toledo. Several metals, olives, oil from Baetica, salted fish and garumand wines were some of the goods produced in Hispania and traded throughout the Empire. Likewise, it was an important religious centre during the first years of the spread of Christianity. The legion was a formidable force in the Battle of Actium that took place in 31 BC. It was only in 19 B. Both of these provinces were rich in silver and other precious metals, and their governors did not hesitate to extort extra wealth from the local inhabitants.
