One of the provinces created in the reign of Diocletian at the end of the 3rd century by dividing the enormous province of Tarraconiensis.

The new province was named after Carthago Nova, New Carthage, the modern Cartagena.

It was still large enough;  it included the Levante, the eastward facing coastal region which lies between the modern Andalucía and Catalonia, but extended inland towards the Cantabrian mountains in the north, having within it the upper basins of the Rivers Guadiana, Tajo (Tagus), and Duero.
