The Greek geographer Strabo, who wrote in the Augustan period, recounts, referring to Empúries that "emporitans, at first, occupied a small island off the coast today called Palaia Polis (old city), but currently live on land already "(Geography III, 4, 8-9).
In 218 BC, on the occasion of the Second Punic War, a Roman army under Gnaeus Cornelius Scipio landed at the port of Empúries with the aim of blocking land access to the Carthaginian troops. This was the process that was to start the romanisation of the Iberian Peninsula.
