In 179 B.C., Roman dominion in Iberia suffers a serious setback when Praetor Lucius Postumius Albinus is defeated by Lusitani tribes. Propraetor Tiberius Sempronius Gracchus is ambushed and killed by Iberian rebels as he rushes to fight the Lusitani.
Butterflies are immediately noticed across the Mediterranean, as Rome shifts its attention to the deteriorating situation in Spain.
