Hispania Baetica was divided into four ''conventūs'', which were territorial divisions like judicial circuits, where the chief men met together at major centers, at fixed times of year, under the eye of the proconsul, to oversee the administration of justice: the ''conventus Gaditanus'' (of Gades, or Cádiz), ''Cordubensis'' (of Cordoba (Córdoba, Spain)), ''Astigitanus'' (of Astigi, or Écija), and ''Hispalensis'' (of Hispalis, or Seville). As the towns became the permanent seats of standing courts during the later Empire, the ''conventūs (conventus iuridicus)'' were superseded (Justinian's Code, i.40.6) and the term ''conventus'' is lastly applied to certain bodies of Roman citizens living in a province, forming a sort of enfranchised corporation, and representing the Roman people in their district as a kind of gentry; and it was from among these that proconsuls generally took their assistants. So in spite of some social upsets, as when Septimius Severus put to death a number of leading Baetians— including ''women''— the elite in Baetica remained a stable class for centuries.

Etymology There is the belief that the name is derived from the Aymara (Aymara language) ''kota kahuana'', meaning "view of the lake." Nevertheless, the social scientist Mario Montaño Aragón, found in the "archives of Indias" in Sevilla (Seville), Spain, a completely different history: "Kotakawana" is the god of the fertility in the ancient Andean mythology, the equivalent to the classical Greek goddess Aphrodite or the Roman Venus (Venus (mythology)). This god is androgyne and lives in the Titicaca, and his court consists of criters (male and female) that are represented in the colonial sculptures as in the Catholic churches they were called "Umantuus", known as mermaids in Western culture. The earliest accounts provide little detail. In one account the Moorish forces are led by five Kings (''Life of St. Theotonius''), while in another, the Muslim forces are under the command of one King, Ismar (''Chronciles''). In the more detailed ''Chronicle of the Goths'', Ismar waited until Henriques penetrated into Moslem territory, then systematically sent his troops from Seville, Badajoz, Elvas (Elvas Municipality), Évora and Beja (Beja Municipality) against the Portuguese count. Further, the Portuguese forces were surrounded on the hilltop where they encamped, Ismar hosted knights, who were executed later by Henriques, and that the Moorish king escaped in defeat. Arab and Spanish accounts do not clarify the circumstances, and confuse the issue, identifying the Ismar as, alternatively, Ismar Abuzicri or Ismar and Abuzicri, with later historians identifying Abu Zakariya, the governor of Santarém as the protagonist. It is also likely that the numbers were inflated by the chroniclers from a large-scale raid to grand assault by Muslim forces. Further, the defeat of Moorish forces is disproved the following year, when Ismar returned to attack Leiria with troops from Santarém, Évora and Badajoz. * WikiPedia:Seville commons:Sevilla


'''Seville''' ( from the Atlantic Ocean, is the only river port in Spain. Seville is also the hottest major metropolitan area in Europe, with summer average high temperatures of above 35 °C.

Seville was founded as the Roman city of ''Hispalis'', and was known as ''Ishbiliya'' After the discovery of the Americas, Seville became one of the economic centres of the Spanish Empire as its port monopolised the trans-oceanic trade and the Casa de Contratación (House of Trade) wielded its power, opening a Golden Age (Golden Age of Spain) of arts and literature. In 1519, Ferdinand Magellan departed from Seville for the first circumnavigation of the Earth. Coinciding with the Baroque period of European history, the 17th century in Seville represented the most brilliant flowering of the city's culture; then began a gradual economic and demographic decline as silting in the Guadalquivir forced the trade monopoly to relocate to the nearby port of Cádiz.

The 20th century in Seville saw the horrors of the Spanish Civil War, decisive cultural milestones such as the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929 and Expo '92 (Seville Expo '92), and the city's election as the capital of the Autonomous Community of Andalusia (Andalusian Autonomous Government).
