  • Flabellina derived of Latin Flabellum, meaning “fan”.
  • Baetica. Name of an ancient Roman province formed under Augustus, circa 15-12 BC, after the division of the Lusitania from the Hispania Ulterior. The land area of the Roman province corresponded to more than 75% of the current Andalusia (Spain), specifically it included the full provinces of Huelva, Seville, Cadiz, Malaga and Cordoba, the western half of Granada and Jaen and a fifth of that of Almería, and a quarter of the current Extremadura (south of Badajoz).
