Baetica was established after the Emperor Augustus conquered the whole of the Iberian Peninsula. Baetica was known for its extensive wealth from the ports which connected the Mediterranean to the Atlantic Ocean. Baetica also had an extensive trade of olive oil, olives, wine, and amphora. It was heavily influenced by the culture of the Carthaginians and Greeks. Baetica's record keeping was known to be poor as the people of Baetica were much more fond of the pleasure and luxuries of life than hard labor. Because of this Baetica depended on the trade of industrial materials but not their production within their province.
