The Turdetani are classified as an iberian tribe. They lived north of the Guadalquivir River in Andalusia in present-day southern spain and were probably a subgroup or descendants of the earlier Tartessians. They were one of four tribes that the second-century c. e. Alexandrian geographer Ptolemy recorded as situated in Baetica, along with the Bastetani, Bastuli, and Turduli.

Both peoples established trading colonies along the coast and influenced many of the Iberians culturally The Romans established their first colonies on the iberian Peninsula at the start of the second century b. c.e. The Turdetani resisted them at first but were defeated in 195 b. c.e. by legions under Marcus Porcius Cato, consul of Iberia, after he had pacified
