The location and foundation of Julia Traducta is uncertain. It is believed to be located in the province of Cadiz in Andalucia. The name of Julia Traducta was obviously influenced by the Julia, the wife of Augustus. Most of the coins from this area feature the ill-fated grandsons of Augustus, Gaius and Lucius. Augustus had his hopes on either of them taking the throne after his death. Unfortunately their early deaths resulted in his stepson Tiberius taking the throne.
