The Iberian peninsula was one of the main sources of non-Italian troops in the late Republic and one of the most prized.

When Gaius Julius Caesar arrived as Governor in the province of Baetica or Hispania Ulterior, as it was called in 61 BC, he immediately enlisted a new legion of Spaniards, none other than the much famed 10th Legion that played a crucial part in the Gallic Wars, fighting under Caesar in virtually every battle. However, during the late Republic, non-Italian troops were not enlisted in the legions but added as separate units which were generally led by their own native chiefs; their internal organisation was left to their own Commanders.
