Was C. Rubellius Blandus Involved in the Exploitation of the Silver Mines of Carthago Nova?*
The mention of three members of the gens Rubellia in two funerary inscriptions recovered from an important mining complex located near Carthago Nova allows us to consider the possibility that the Rubellii Blandi from Tibur might be involved in the mining activity. Consequently, the wedding of Tiberius' niece, Julia, to C. Rubellius Blandus could be related to the princeps' interests in controlling the silver mines of the south-est of Spain.
