Hispania Ulterior

 

a Roman province on the southwest coast of Spain.

The province was formed in 197 B.C. Under Augustus, circa 15–12 B.C., the province of Lusitania was detached from Hispania Ulterior in the west. The remaining southern portion of the province from the time of the Flavians (A.D. 69–96) was called Baetica.
