Carthage (Phoenician city)

Carthage was originally a dependency of the Phoenician state of Tyre, but gained independence around 650 BC. It was based in what is now Tunisia, but established an empire throughout the Mediterranean. At the height of the city's prominence, it was a major hub of trade with political influence extending over most of the western Mediterranean, challenging the Ancient Greek City States and the Roman Republic for power.
