According to tradition, vintage barcelona was founded by either the Phoenicians or the Carthaginians, who had trading posts along the Catalonian coast. It is no longer thought, however, vintage barcelona owes its name to the family of the Carthaginian leader Hamilcar Barca. In Roman times the Colonia Faventia Julia Augusta Pia Barcino did not become a centre of any real importance until the 3rd century AD. During the three centuries of Visigothic occupation, the city was known as Barcinona. It became an important religious centre before the arrival of the Moors in AD 717 (see vintage barcelona map).
The first human remains in the area of vintage barcelona date back to 2,500 BC and the existence of its first hamlet dates back to between 2,000 and 1,500 BC. According to the poet Rufus Festus Avienus, around the 4th century BC, there were two Iberian hamlets in barcelona: one on the Tàber hill, whose name is unknown and which historians have called in different ways - Barcilo, Barcinom or Barkeno - which could have been the origin of the name Barcelona; and another on the hill of Montjuïc, called Laye, occupied by the Iberian tribe of the Laietans (see vintage barcelona map).
