Celtiberi, an ancient Spanish race sprung from a mixture of Celts and Iberians. They occupied an inland district, south of the sources of the Guadalquivir, and between the Ebro and the sources of the Tagus, Ebro, and Guadiana. They consisted of four tribes, and were famous as cavalry and infantry. They held their own in dress and manners as late as 72 B.C. Their chief towns were Legobriga, Bilbilis, the birthplace of Martial, and Numantia, destroyed by Scipio Africanus in 133 B.C.
