After the destruction of Punic Carthage in 146 BC, a new city of Carthage (Latin Carthāgō) was built on the same land in the mid-1st century BC. By the 3rd century, Carthage had developed into one of the largest cities of the Roman Empire, with a population of several hundred thousand. It was the center of the Roman province of Africa, which was a major breadbasket of the empire. Carthage briefly became the capital of a usurper, Domitius Alexander, in 308–311.Conquered by the Vandals in 439, Carthage served as the capital of the Vandal Kingdom for a century. Re-conquered by the Eastern Roman Empire in 533–534, it continued to serve as an Eastern Roman regional center, as the seat of the praetorian prefecture of Africa (after 590 the Exarchate of Africa). The city was sacked and destroyed b

  • La Cartago romana (llatí: Carthāgō) es refereix a la nova ciutat romana que es va construir damunt l'emplaçament on hi havia hagut la Cartago púnica després que aquesta fou destruïda l'any 146 aC. En el segle iii Cartago va esdevenir una de les ciutats més importants de l'Imperi Romà i la seva població va arribar a centenars de milers d'habitants. Fou la capital de la província d'Àfrica, considerada el graner de l'imperi. Cartago es va convertir breument en la capital de l'imperi entre el 308 i el 311 quan l'usurpador Domici Alexandre es va autoproclamar emperador. El 435 fou conquerida pels vàndals. Cartago va esdevenir la capital del Regne Vàndal durant un segle. Els anys 533 - 534 fou reconquerida per l'Imperi Romà d'Orient i va continuar sent un centre regional de l'Imperi Romà d'Orient com a seu de la prefectura del pretori d'Àfrica, que a partir del 590 va esdevenir exarcat d'Àfrica fins que la ciutat fou destruïda durant la conquesta musulmana del Magrib l'any 698.

  • Římské Kartágo bylo město a velký přístav v severní Africe, hlavní město provincie Afrika, které Římané vybudovali na troskách punského Kartága, jež vyvrátili v roce 146 př. n. l. Ve 3. století patřilo k největším a nejvýznamnějším městům římské říše a mělo statisíce obyvatel. (cs)

The city was sacked and destroyed by Umayyad Arab forces after the Battle of Carthage in 698 to prevent it from being reconquered by the Byzantine Empire. A fortress on the site was garrisoned by Muslim forces until the Hafsid period, when it was captured by Crusaders during the Eighth Crusade. After the withdrawal of the Crusaders, the Hafsids decided to destroy the fortress to prevent any future use by a hostile power. Roman Carthage was used as a source of building materials for Kairouan and Tunis in the 8th century. (en)
