This thesis deals with a group of regiments of the auxilia of the Roman imperial army raised in the Iberian peninsula. Initially the discussion covers general principles concerning the interpretation of evidence connected with the Roman auxiliary army. The following section deals with the stages by which the auxiliary army came to be an official part of the military strength of Rome. Reasons are given for considering separately the auxilia originating in north-west Tarraconensis, and suggestions are made about the dates of formation of the series of regiments raised there. The histories of individual alae and cohorts from the Iberian peninsula are set out under three headings: those from Tarraconensis (excluding the north-west); those from the north-west; and those levied in Lusitania. Their movements are traced through epigraphic and archaeological evidence until the records cease. Finally some general observations are made on the history of the Roman auxiliary army from the study of 20% of its total strength. Two appendices treat matters relevant to the discussion of individual regiments to which reference has been made in the text.
