A map illustrating the scope and organization of the Roman provinces in North Africa. Since the establishment of the first Roman territory on the continent (roughly corresponding to modern Tunisia) in 146 BCE following the destruction of Carthage in the Third Punic War, Rome had expanded its rule into (what is today) the Maghreb, turning the North African provinces into one of the most productive and wealthy landscapes of the Mediterranean and the ancient world in general.
