A Short History of Alpes Poeninae

The Alpes Poeninae were the most important of the Alpine Provinces, the others being the Alpes Maritimae and the Alpes Cottiae. This part of the Alps includes a large pass, know to us as the Great St. Bernard Pass. It was the main route for the Roman Army to move out of Italia and into Gaul. Being a center of trade the Capital of Alpes Poeninae became a commercial powerhouse near the border of Italia and the Alpes. The Alpes Poeninae were established by the Roman Military but the people and ercahnts of that area were part of the Salassi tribe, a peaceful people who did not resist the Romans. The Province was named for Poeninus Mons, Latin for the St. Bernard Pass. The Temple to Jupiter Poeninus was inside this Pass. However, Poenus means Carthaginian and to prevent confusion this Province also had the name Alpes Graiae. The record of Governors of the Alpes Poeninae was lost until the start of the reign of Emperor Ignacius
