Carthaginian Allies: The Lusitani

The Lusitani are mentioned for the first time in Livy (218 BC) and are described as fighting for the Carthaginians; they are reported as fighting against Rome in 194 BC, sometimes allied with Celtiberian tribes. The Lusitani were first rate mountain fighters, adept at ambush, raid and skirmish. Rome continued to fight such Iberian tribes long after the defeat of Carthage.
