the Sierra Morena (Livy 22.30.11
; 26.20), and famous
for its silver mines; the Baebelo mine paid Hannibal 300
pounds per day. In Pliny's time (33.97) it was excavated
to 1500 paces. It has produced many mining instruments
now in the Linares museum, and two reliefs of miners,
one in the National Archaeological Museum in Madrid,
the other lost.
