This chapter provides the text and translation of Appian's Wars of the Romans in Iberia (Iberike). It recounts the major events of Rome's involvement in Iberia that is based on the conflict with Carthage, the war with the Lusitanians, and the Celtiberian wars. The major sections of the Iberike is framed by a brief introduction on the geography and early history of Iberia and an epilogue that brings the account from the fall of Numantia down to the reign of Augustus. A short bridge passage between the conflict with Carthage and the war with the Lusitanians links the end of the Hannibalic war with the first set of wars in Celtiberia. The arrangement is not strictly chronological as the sections on the Lusitanian and Celtiberian wars overlap with one another and the section on the Lusitanians is inserted into the account of the Celtiberian wars.

Keywords:   Appian, Wars of the Romans in Iberia, Iberike, Carthage, Lusitanians, Celtiberian wars
