Carthage was a great maritime trading city that Phoenician colonists from Tyre founded in the eighth century B.C. From the 6th to the 3rd century B.C. the Carthaginians dominated trade in the western Mediterranean. The Carthaginians started minting coins at the end of the 5th century to pay troops engaged in the wars against the Greek city-states in Sicily. The coins were derived from Greek coins, particularly issues of Syracuse Ancient Greek coins.
