Carthage was a colony of the Phoenicians, and was said to have been founded by Elissa from the city of Tyre. After becoming large and powerful, Carthage then ruled a number of other colonial settlements.

Details about the origin of Carthage and all these other colonies can be found in Chapters 13 to 21 of Phoenician Secrets: Exploring the Ancient Mediterranean.

Among the Phoenician towns and ports established at this time were these in Libya: Leptis, Oia and Sabrata; in Tunisia: Hippo Diarrhytos, Neapolis, Hadrumetum, Thapsos and Acholla; in Algeria: Hippo and Icosium (Algiers); in Sicily: Solus, Panormus (Palermo), Motye; in Sardinia: Nora, Karalis, Sulci and Tharros; in Pantelleria: Kossyra; in Malta: Melita and Gaulos; in Ibiza: Ebusos; in Spain: Abdera, Sexi, Malaka, Karteia and Tartessos; in Morocco: Zili and Tingis...which we know today as Tangier.  Other colonies are mentioned from time to time, but these are the ones that come up the most often.
