It was a city of the Illergetes, whose inhabitants were called Celsenses. This very ancient place was situated near the Ebro. It's numismatic designation is C. or COL. V. I. CELSA (Colonia Victrix Julia Celsa.) The coins of this colony consist of Celtiberian and bilingual autonomes in brass; and of Latin imperial, in first, second, and third brass, of Augustus, Agrippa, and Tiberius. It's name of Julia indicates the founder to have been Julius Caesar, in honor of whose victories, it probably (says Vaillant), received the additional appellation of Victrix. Of those struck under Augustus one (engraved in the Medailles de Christine) bears on it's obverse the bare head of the emperor, within a crown of laurel, allusive (Vaillant supposes) to the signal successes, achieved by the adopted heir and successor of Julius over the Cantabri and Asturi, who then occupied that northern part of Hispania, now called the Asturias. The reverses of the Celsian imperials exhibit for the most part a bull standing, the usual sign of a Romano-Spanish colony, and are inscribed, according to the custom, with the names of the Duumviri, who caused them to be struck. There is, however, a reverse of Agrippa, with trophy and bucklers, and a Tiberius with the simpulum, securis, aspergillum, and apex. Mr Akerman, in his Coins of Cities, &c. has given an engraving of one of the autonomes, with a helmed horseman bearing a palm branch.

CELTIBERIA Celtiberia, an area in present north-central Spain occupied from the 3rd century bc onward by tribes thought to be of mixed Iberian and Celtic stock. These Celtiberians inhabited the hill country between the sources of the Tagus (Tajo) and Iberus (Ebro) rivers, including most of the modern province of Soria and much of the neighbouring provinces of Guadalajara and Teruel. In historic times the Celtiberians were composed of the Arevaci, Belli, Titti, and Lusones. The earliest population of Celtiberia was that of the southeastern Almería culture of the Bronze Age, after which came Hallstatt invaders, who occupied the area shortly before 600 bc. The Hallstatt people were in turn subjugated by the Arevaci, who dominated the neighbouring Celtiberian tribes from the powerful strongholds at Okilis (modern Medinaceli) and Numantia. The Belli and the Titti were settled in the Jalón valley, the Sierra del Solorio separating them from the Lusones to the northeast. The material culture of Celtiberia was strongly influenced by that of the Iberian people of the Ebro valley. Horse bits, daggers, and shield fittings attest the warlike nature of the Celtiberians, and one of their inventions, the two-edged Spanish sword, was later adopted by the Romans. The Celtiberians first submitted to the Romans in 195 bc, but they were not completely under Roman domination until 133 bc, when Publius Cornelius Scipio Aemilianus destroyed Numantia. The Roman city of Clunia (Peñalba de Castro) later became the administrative centre.
